Lemon Jazz Festival

Lemon Jazz Festival Sorrento

(July 21 to 29)

A week full of zest at Villa Fiorentino with five evenings of jazz.

Sorrento is preparing to celebrate the flavors and colours of its land with an event that has become an appointment awaited by many for the great music and the beautiful location. The LEMON JAZZ FESTIVAL 2018, for its second edition, offers a program as fresh as lemon thanks to the international names that will perform in one of the most suggestive frames of the coastal city, the neoclassical Villa Fiorentino.

It opens on July 21st with the band of STANLEY CLARKE; the American bassist is supported by a highly sought-after group of prodigious musicians who combine their virtuosity with a style that is now historical and inimitable, in which fusion, funk and improvisation merge. Four times winner of the Grammy Awards, Clarke remains one of the most influential and admired musicians from the seventies to today.
Starts 21.00. Tickets

July 22nd sees the quintet of ROY HARGROVE; the Texan trumpeter (also winner of two Grammy Awards) is considered a sort of heir to Miles Davis. His well-tested line up is getting a well-deserved public consensus and excellent feedback from the specialized critic.
Starts 21.00. Tickets

July 27th is the turn of the band of over Atlantic YELLOWJACKETS, historical group active since the early 80 ‘. The two founding members, Russell Ferrante and Will Kennedy, are joined by the saxophonist Bob Mintzer and the talented Australian bassist Dane Anderson.
Starts 21.00. Tickets

On July 28th GEGÈ TELESFORO will perform and his project Fun Slow Ride. Singer, percussionist, multi-instrumentalist, producer, but also journalist, entertainer, author and radio and television presenter. Gege Telesforo has always been a versatile artist, and above all a refined vocalist.
Starts 21.00. Free admission

It closes July 29 with sonority typically jazz / rock / progressive sonority. With over fifteen years of intense live activity, the TRIO BOBO, has now acquired a very solid interplay. Faso and Christian Meyer, rhythmic bones of Elio and Le Storie Tese, meet guitarist Alessio Menconi.
Starts 21.00. Free admission

In addition to music, also pictorial art and tastings of local products where the taste and beauty of lemon reigns

Waiting for link to be confirmed for full details and tickets.

For some reason a gin and tonic seems a good idea.

Music in Sant’Agata

intricanti music festival 2018

(July 7 & 8)

The Intricanti Music Festival 2018 brings two concerts to the Residenza Cerulli in Sant’Agata sui due Golfi, Massa Lubrense. We have provided a rough translation of the two groups of performers but think the videos will speak louder than words. They are well worth viewing.

Start at 9.30 pm. Free admission subject to availability.

Musica Da Ripostiglio

Saturday 7 July

Luca Pirozzi – voice, guitar, banjo
Luca Giacomelli – guitar, choirs
Raffaele Toninelli – double bass, choirs
Emanuele Pellegrini – drums, percussions, choirs

Musica da Ripostiglio

The aspiration of the group, nominated for Grammy Awards 2018, would have been to arrange the songs of singer-songwriter Luca Pirozzi in a chamber music, but given the times they run, they preferred to change the trend and their music has become from “Ripostiglio”.
A musical reality born from the twenty-year artistic association of Luca Pirozzi and guitarist Luca Giacomelli, to which were later added by Raffaele Toninelli on double bass and Emanuele Pellegrini on drums. There are four of them and show, making the audience entertain with a repertoire halfway between the light-hearted and the busy, between the unpublished and the cited, a unique act able to involve viewers of all ages in an original and exciting.


Virtuosi Di S.Martino in Rumors

Sunday 8 July

Roberto Del Gaudio Dramaturgy
Music development Federico Odling

with Roberto Del Gaudio – voice
Federico Odling – cello
Vittorio Ricciardi – flute
Francesco Solombrino – violin
Carmine Terracciano – guitar

virtuosidis-martino-in-rumor

With Rumors, the chamber ensemble founded in Napol inel 1994 presents a playful and irreverent journey in the world of 60-70s song.
Decades of great revolutionary drive, of great promises of change, of great utopian prophecies, accompanied by a variegated and almost obsessive soundtrack made of songs, rock, disco, “commitment”. And just around the most famous songs of those years the Virtuosi develop a surgical treatment in style Dr. Frankenstein, grafting musical and text shreds on scores of others: Rino Gaetano meets Erik Satie, John Lennon who marries Squallor, Bob Dylan summoned to Zecchino d’Or, not to mention Pink Floyd in 007 sauce and the hymn to Abba’s militant feminism. To present this concert-show is a new character of invention, the manager of Virtuosi, in a daring series of stories and curiosities related to those mythical years, groups, stories. A paradoxical reinterpretation proposed by flute, piccolo, violin, viola, cello, classical guitar, with voices and sensations addressed to the parody of some icons of contemporary music, from Patty Pravo to the Beatles.

Massa Lubrense Summer Events

Massa Lubrense Events 2018

(June to Sept)

Massa Lubrense, also known as the legendary Land of Sirens, is only a 20 minute bus ride from Sorrento so a day out to this beautiful area is easy and well worth the trip.

Massa Lubrense is an area with 18 beautiful villages each offering different and unique landscapes. Sant’Agata sui due Golfi, set on the hill overlooking the bays of Naples and Salerno, the Bay of Jeranto and the Punta Campanella, directly opposite the island of Capri, are typical examples. The countryside is criss-crossed with sign posted paths through ancient hamlets, lemon orchards, olive groves, oak woods and sunny coasts. The perfect picnic scenario.

Take a look at their excellent Summer Events programme to see if you can combine a visit to coincide with a concert, festival, walk or arts and craft displays.

For those interested in guided walks there is a list of Summer Excursions starting from Massa Lubrense on the back page. More information on the many walking trails in this area, including map sources, can be found in our Walks feature.
