Dear friends of Pizzicar Galante, As some of you may already know, Anna’s research has been selected for the call for projects at the National Library of France and thus she’ll be an associate musician-researcher at the Bibliothèque nationale de France for 2017-2018. Pizzicar Galante is very happy to participate in this new adventure, and to play for the “Inédits de la Bibliothèque nationale de France” concert series next year. Stay tuned! 🙂 More information on the website of the Bibliothèque nationale de France: www.bnf.fr
