In an exciting evening of music and words, Berklee celebrates Giulio Rapetti Mogol, one of the most successful, inspiring, and prolific lyricists of the Italian popular music scene. Join us to participate in a unique interview with Mogol and listen to some of his most famous songs, performed by the band Scanzonati. RSVP is required.
The concert is presented by Berklee’s Contemporary Writing and Production Department, headed by maestro Andrea Pejrolo. Scanzonati features Pejrolo and Stefano Marchese, with special guest Angelo Valori on piano.
The band will play original arrangements of some of Mogol's most famous songs, written specifically for this event, by Andrea Pejrolo, Stefano Marchese, and Angelo Valori, a professor at the Conservatorio di Musica Luisa D’Annunzio in Pescara, Italy.
From October 1–5, Mogol has been invited to a series of events during the “Vivere all’Italiana” (Living the Italian Way) initiative organized and promoted by the Consulate General of Italy in Boston.
“I’m very enthusiastic of contributing to this prestigious initiative,” said Mogol, who rose to fame in the 1960s, writing award-winning songs for singers such as Gino Paoli and Bobby Solo. In the 1970s, he consolidated a partnership with popular singer-songwriter Lucio Battisti.
