Aperitivo Classico 2018 - July

Bar Fod, Cisternino, Italy.

One of the highlights of summer in Cisternino is the series of Sunday lunchtime concerts in the town square organised by Bar Fod. Every Sunday at 12 noon in July and August, a drink and nibble of some local produce with an hour of live classical music. Then off to lunch somewhere.

Sunday 24-June-2018

A pre-season concert from Robert Tiso on the Glass Harmonica. Amazing virtuosity. We bought the CD.

Looks harder than playing the piano to me.

And "acqua e sale" a traditional peasant dish of stale bread moistened with water and oil, then mixed with salt and vegetables.

Sunday 01-June-2018

No concert.

Sunday 08-July-2018

The fisamonica or accordion by G. Denitto.

Billed as a solo he was joined by a singer for part of the concert.

Oops, forgot to take a picture of the nibbles.

Sunday 15-July-2018

Pianoforte solo by L. Didomenicantonio.

Talented playing but a somewhat serious programme for a lunchtime gig.

Oops, forgot to take a photo before I started eating.

Sunday 22-July-2018

Violin and Pianoforte - E. Liuzzi and A. Palminsano. Lovely music and a livelier concert than last week.

I love crudo (Parma ham), here presented atop a melon sorbet. One of our party was not a great meat eater so I got a double dose of ham. Nom, nom, nom.

To "wet the babies head" and celebrate recent births sparkling wine was provided by Fabio Pinto (Bar Fod proprietor in white), Danilo Russo (musical director and new father), and Francesco (recent father of twins with Pasqua who used to work here).

Sunday 29-July-2018

Trio "Nueva Armonia", [l-r: Goffreddo, Vinci, Lafratta]. Very talented trio and the programme getting livelier by the week this is a brilliant way to spend a Sunday lunchtime.

Classic tastes of Puglia, plus a G & T.

That's the half time report for July. No Aperitivo Classico next week as it is the festival of the town's patron saints, Santi Quirico e Julietta. Normal service will be resumed on the 12th of August.
