finally spring is here with its flowers, parfums and shining sunrays giving us a new positive energy. During the previous months, with some exceptions, my work has been focused principally on set up my private recording studio in Reichenberg (Germany). It is surrounded by a wonderful green park and an amazing, uncontaminated forest.
In such a blessed place, the creativity for composition and the power to play for a great part of the day is obvious. It comes natural also a ‘spiritual approach’ to Life and Music. This aspect is widely described in my new musical compositions in which ancients or ethnical flutes reproduce my deep emotions and feelings coming from Mother Nature.
The next appointments are in June. First of all, a new recital with the sicilian pianist Serena Chillemi. After our success at the ‘Rubinsteinsaal‘ of the prestigious ‘Steinway and Sons House (Steinwayhaus)’ of Munich, we are honored to perform again together at ‘Carl Maria von Weber Museum’ of Dresden (Germany) where the composer was living during the summer. Particularly, we will play the ‘Six Sonatas op. 10 for violin and piano’ (arranged for flute and piano by Gerhard Braun) exactly at his home-studio (arbeitzimmer) where they were composed a great part of his successful compositions.

This months will begin also a new collaboration with a very talented ukraine-hungarian pianist (today resident in Nuremberg, Germany): Anna Balint.
The location of our first performance will be the seat of the ‘Opera House‘ (‘Operhaus‘) of Henfenfeld (Germany), a very qualified and important centre for singers directed by Ms. Denette Whitter.
Anna and I will perform the same, successful program proposed at the ‘Rubinsteinsaal‘ which includes: W.A.Mozart, F. Schubert and A. Piazzolla near an original and very famous composition of a young Gaetano Donizetti.

June is also an important month for Counselling and Music and Music Therapy both in Active and Receptive modality.
I will take part as a speaker to one of the most important and famous Congress which takes place every year in Bad Kissingen (Low Rhenania, Germany) and recalls more than one thousand participants around all Germany and other Countries for each edition.
The theme of the Congress is very engaging! ‘Kairos, shaping the change‘. Experts, professors, lecturers, etc. will discuss with students about methods, techniques, philosophy and much more to embrace ‘the right moment’, ‘the right time and place’ to make a real transformation in our lives.
My subject will be ‘The power of synergy of Music and Imagination in the process of Change’ and the workshop will be divided in two sections: theory and practice. We will talk all together about changing, imagery, imaginative music, relaxation and energizing, travelling in ourself through Music, Stanislawsky System and Alexander Technique. The group exercises will be funny and really stimulating to begin a positive metamorphosis inside us.

During the summer is foreseen also the official opening of the new Music for Imagery and Performing Arts for therapeutic goals of Gambatesa (Campobasso, Italy) under my direction.
Stanislawsky Method, Music and Imagery and many other activities will be performed also in this wonderful village surrounded by greenery. A particular space will be dedicated to Seniors. You can contact us to receive all detailed information to join the group.
Other concerts and workshop are ‘on the way’ to be finalized. Between them a concert to ‘open air’ in the magic atmosphere of ‘Santa Severa’ Castle, near Rome (Italy)… but we will talk about this and all next, amazing events, promoted by Fernando Fracassi Music in collaboration with our great co-workers, during the next few months.
Enjoy your spring and live with Joy and Love…always and everywhere!
