Mendelssohn and Lombardi at Lake Albano and Frascati

On 29th September 2022 the Mendelssohn-Gesellschaft of Berlin organizes a visit to the Castelli Romani, which will be divided into two different but connected moments: first a visit to the home of Luca Lombardi and his wife Miriam Meghnagi, during which Maestro Lombardi will talk about his work, his links with German culture and his relationship with Felix Mendelssohn’s music. There will also be pianists Alessandra Ammara and Roberto Prosseda, who will perform two compositions by Lombardi. This will be followed by a guided tour of Villa Falconieri in Frascati (a beautiful villa that was still owned by the Mendelssohn family in the 19 century), where Ammara and Prosseda, among the best Italian pianists of today, will perform a Mendelssohnian program that will also include the composition by Lombardi Mendelssohn im jüdischen Museum Berlin, dedicated to Roberto Prosseda, who performed it many times, after the world premiere, which took place in 2014 at the Jewish Museum of Berlin itself.
