Lake Como Festival
The eight edition of the Lake Como Festival will begin on 30th April 2013.
The association Amadeus Arte has been organizing since 2006 a series of chamber music concerts in intimate spaces within the beautiful villas and gardens overlooking Lake Como. This year the festival will also involve some locations in Brianza enlarging the event. The calendar develops into two periods: Spring (April, May and June) and Autumn (September, October).
Lake Como and the beauties that surround it, will once again be the background of a cultural initiative that blends together music, nature, flavours and culture
The excellent acoustics of concerts’ locations allows to enjoy a unique experience, a journey inside music, history and environment in some of the most beautiful villas of Lake Como.
All concerts will be accompanied by further cultural activities; there will be guided tours organized giving visitors the possibility to visit the beautiful gardens of some villas that are normally closed to the public; in some occasions you will also have the opportunity to have dinner in these beautiful locations.
The Festival will be an outstanding example of integration between tradition and innovation, giving space, like every year to the classical repertoire represented by the Turkish violinist Hakan Sensoy and director of the orchestra , by the Trio Broz (violin, viola) and by many other musicians that will perform music by Beethoven, Schumann, Bacalov, Bach, Rossini….
Other evenings will be dedicated to modern music, like the music made by Floraleda, considered today as one of the most interesting and original harpist in the international concert panorama and critics consider her also a real innovator in the approach to her instrument. Or again Candeli and Menconi that have managed to put together the classic experiences of Candeli with the jazz style of Menconi.
The Festival is thought for an international audience as the whole organization will take place both in Italian and English and will host many international artists too.
