Day 4: Sant’Anna in Camprena, Italy

This 16th-century Tuscan church has unusually reverberent acoustics. Each note awakened a powerful echo with a long decay, so that Debussy’s sinuous lines became harmonized sonorities. It was really surprising to experience this effect while playing!

An interesting note: part of the film The English Patient was filmed here.

My thanks to Stefano at Sant’Anna in Camprena for allowing me to play in this wonderful and historic space.
