The charming Chicago artist, active not just as a performer but also as composer, will instead present works by herself, Kurtag, Scelsi, Cage and Harvey. Arditti and Uitti are among the greatest interpreters of contemporary music. During these days and in the same place, before the concert (4.30-6.30 pm), two meetings with some of the best known sociologists and art historians (but also artists, musicologists, etc.) will provide an evaluation of the ongoing changes about the relationship between users and artworks.
