The concerts will take place at the historic Villa Pignatelli.

"I am very excited and feel fortunate to participate in these 4 recitals," says Cymerman, John C. and Lillian W. Siegesmund Professor of Music at DePauw. The Association Scarlatti's 2005-06 season has included such prestigious soloists and ensembles as the Kronos Quartet, the Hilliard Ensemble with Jan Garbarek, the Emerson and the Alban Berg Quartets as well as pianist Alfred Brendel, violinist/violist Pinchas Zukerman and the Prague Philarmonic Orchestra. steinway d piano 2.jpg

In the four performances in Naple, Cymerman will be joined by artists from France and Italy, including David Grimal and Sylvie Gazeau, violin; Alain Meunier and Raphaele Semezis, cello; Mario Ancillotti, flute; and Michel Lethiec, clarinet. Programs include works by Mozart, Martinu and Schoenberg.

"This will no 'spring break' for me, as I will start rehearsals literally right after I get off the plane in Naples," Professor Cymerman notes. "There will be seven hours of daily rehearsals, and they will be open to the public, which is a very efficient way to work, as we don't waste time and are able to introduce even more people to the music."
