THE FLOATING MOVING CONCERT-MUSIC ON THE WATER
IN LAKE COMO, PERFORMED BY ALESSANDRO MARTIRE
By Vic Gerami
On September 1, a unique event will take place on Lake Como, Italy. A floating and moving concert on the water played by Alessandro Martire is slated in the picturesque lake.
The idea of the floating moving concert comes from the fantasy of the Italian pianist and composer Alessandro Martire. It has been specifically organized to take place on Lake Como (Italy) on a floating moving platform, towed by a fully electric motorboat in front of the wonderful Villa del Balbianello, providing a unique experience in a perfect union of landscape and music.
An incredible futuristic piano, design by Alessandro and produced with the highest technique will be the star of the concert together with the music and the perfect atmosphere of the lake.
Uniqueness, innovation, and passion are the key features of a stunning eco-sustainable cultural project, built and produced by an enthusiastic team of young people determined to turn a dream into reality. The Floating Moving Concert is the peculiar defining format of Lej Festival which, every year, hosts both Italian and international artists with different backgrounds and styles.
Alessandro Martire has been named the Ambassador of Lake Como, the region where he was born, which, as he says, provides the inspiration for his music.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the concert will be streaming for a worldwide audience on DICE.FM
