Description

The 2022 edition of the Piano Festival offers you an overview of the last century, focusing in particular on the twenty years between the First and Second World War.

Temporarily suspended the monographs, of which the great Chopin was the protagonist last year, the festival becomes choral opening to the plurality of voices that animated the first half of the twentieth century. With Novecento Suite you will embark on an exciting musical journey together with the unforgettable Ravel, Rachmaninov, Debussy, Stravinsky and Gershwin, listening to famous pieces, but also unpublished pieces (including Britten's brilliant concert).

Two months of appointments to relive all the musical freshness of the time, suspended between jazz, dance music and tradition. Do not miss this new edition, which celebrates the centenary of the birth of the founder Agostino Orizio.
