dilettante [dilet‘tante]: person who enjoys the arts or someone who engages in a field out of casual interest rather than as a profession
The production of Dilettanti is a tribute to music for the sake of music! It is a collection of pieces composed by music lovers; amateur composers, some of which had very strong influence on the music scene and on the society of their times.
There are two noble men, one of them a Venetian lawyer, the other one a member of the army, we have a Benedictine monk and a tenor of San Marco who enjoyed composing music for comedians like Goldoni, and some other surprises…
