TEACHERS' BIOGRAPHY

 

FRANCESCA SCAINI, (Singing) After graduating from classical high school, she enrolled at the Conservatorio "B.Marcello" in Venice, graduating with top marks, receiving the silver medal of the President of the Republic as best student. She specialized at the Accademia della Voce in Turin, attending master classes with V.Zeani, F.Corelli, A.Krauss, R.Kabaiwanska; she also attended the Renata Scotto Opera Academy. In 1999 she was chosen by the famous mezzo-soprano Brigitte Fasbaender as Desdemona in Verdi's "Otello". In 2000 she again sang Desdemona in Montepellier, directed by Del Monaco. In 2001 she won the "Maria Callas, New Voices for Verdi" prize in the soprano category. For five years she was Prima Donna at the Hannover Staatsoper, debuting in the roles of Aida, Donna Anna, Fiordiligi, Amelia (Ballo in Maschera), Leonora (Trovatore), Jenufa, Adriana Lecouvreur, Tosca. Other roles in the repertoire: Anna Bolena, Elisabetta from Don Carlo, Butterfly, La Gioconda Elvira (Ernani). She has performed in major theatres and concert halls in Europe and beyond, including the Paris Opera, La Fenice in Venice, in Mexico City at the Teatro Bellas Artes and with the Mexican Philharmonic Orchestra. Worthy of mention is the "Tosca" staged in the 2009-10 season in Trento, Pisa and Rovigo: a passionate and courageous performance as Floria with the dynamic direction of D.Gentili and the conducting of V.Galli, as well as a production of "Attila" by G.Verdi in the places of the libretto, in front of the churchyard of the Basilica of Aquileia. He carried out intense concert activity, especially singing Verdi's "Messa da Requiem" around the world, to name but a few occasions: Odensee (Denmark), Brno, Kiev. She has also always been active in the field of contemporary music: for the Teatro La Fenice in the Sonopolis cycle as the protagonist in the opera jO pal by Hans Jochenn Hespos, which won the prize for best contemporary German production in 2005, directed by A.Viebrock, conductor J.Harneit. Her contact with great directors on the international scene (Ally, Del Monaco, Bieto, Decker, Viebrock, De Monticelli) have stimulated her particular interest in the sound-movement relationship both as a performer and as a teacher: she has been invited to give lectures at the Faculty of Singing at the University of Mexico City, and she is a passionate teacher and she regularly holds singing and performing arts master classes.

Course objectives: The masterclass aims to deepen the relationship between speech and singing, also highlighting reciprocal influences and performance problems, in relation to the specific characteristics of a vocal piece consisting of an aria with recitative from various historical periods chosen by the participants. The masterclass will highlight the need to make the eloquence intelligible and expressive in relation to the different techniques of vocal expression, deepening recitative, agility and legato singing. The relationships between speech and the dynamic, agogic and expressive signs used in musical language will be explored, trying to relate them to the meaning of the text, also from a dramaturgical point of view. The basic technique of singing will also be addressed (suggestions for understanding the body as a musical instrument).
