17 June - ore 16:00 Circolo dei lettori


Many musical cultures use improvisation. Indeed, one of jazz’s greatest merits is having brought improvisation back to the West, where its use had been in decline. Improvisation is the root and lifeblood of music. Far from banally exemplifying an esthetic of imperfection, jazz illustrates how the esthetic sense of improvisation is gives expression to the very process – which is adventurous, with no guaranteed outcome – of the formation of sense. Conference by Alessandro Bertinetto, University of Torino.
