Now more than ever, in a world grounded on consumerism and waste, it's important to work in an alternative way designed to respect , care and preservation of the environment that should be able to sustain ourselves for a long time.
What's the relationship between this concept and music ?
This question is the driving force of our project: a professional orchestra that can work with zero emission.
Zero emission will be our identity and our strong point and we want to show that a cultural activity may be a vehicle of an ethical message.
If you consider culture as personal baggage and social heritage, connected to the relationship between individual and surrounding environment , orchestra public performance can become such a refined and incisive vehicle to expand as much as possible these ideals.
ZEBO wants to join a worldwide movement seeking to achieve a balance between human activity and ecosystem , so much in defence of the culture that is our soul and nature that is our home ,food and oxygen demonstrating with its job that you can work without destroying.
Why Baroque Orchestra ?
Baroque Orchestra actually contains what are the key elements for ecological living: TECHNICAL INNOVATION, RESEARCH , FLEXIBILITY.
Technical Innovation is the use of ancient instruments (restored or replicated versions)that recreates the sounds and colours typical of the period between ‘600 and ‘700.
The research is intended as philological research, in other words the study and care of the theoretical and practical aspects of the instrumental performance, through the analysis of the original works of great composers and musicians at that time.
At last, Baroque repertory has enough varieties to allow, according to needs, a number of musicians varying from a little orchestra to a full-size orchestra with strings, woodwinds and chorus. In this, we recognize the Flexibility.
