F. X. Richter String quartet in C Major op. 5
L. van Beethoven String quartet in F Major op. 95
A. Dvořák String quartet in E-flat Major op. 51

With this concert, we initiate a twinning with the music and musicians of the Czech Republic: the Apollon Quartet will be in residence for Carniarmonie 2023 and is one of the main representatives of the famous Czech quartet school.

This evening, we will listen to two Czech composers, the famous Dvořák and the less well-known Richter who worked for the Mannheim court orchestra and then at the Strasbourg Cathedral. His works merge Baroque elements and features of the Galant style that significantly contributed to the birth of the pre-classical symphony.

Parish Church of San Pietro in Carnia

Founded a few decades before Christ along the right bank of the Bût stream, Zuglio, whose name was originally Iulium Carnicum, is an ancient Roman center established most likely during the proconsulate of Julius Caesar (58-49 B.C.). The mother parish church of San Pietro is of admirable beauty, and its present Gothic style, with a single nave and three altars, was commissioned in 1312 by the Patriarch of Aquileia.

Inside we find the wooden altarpiece of St. Anthony the Abbot, in Renaissance style, enclosed in two Baroque frames and attributed to Gian Domenico Dall'Occhio, and the high altarpiece by Domenico from Tolmezzo. The wooden Christ from 1550, located in the lintel of the main arch, measures nearly two meters in height and is the work of a northern workshop. Outside, the portico has undergone some renovations, but the Romanesque mullioned window survives. The plateau that you encounter at the beginning of the climb, toward the parish church, has a very ancient history; every year, the rite of the "Kissing of the Crosses" takes place here on the occasion of the Ascension.
