I'm very happy to announce that Pietrasanta in Concerto 2020, the 14th "special solidarity" edition, will take place this summer between July 24th and August 2nd.
"Small is Beautiful" could be the title of this edition, as we will present mostly intimate chamber music concerts, around the following composers: Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Mendelssohn, Vivaldi, Piazzolla, Nino Rota etc.
Jing Zhao and myself will partner with a splendid array of pianists, Roberto Prosseda, Alexei Botvinov, Vanessa Benelli Mosell and Alexander Gurning.
In association with the Menuhin Foundation, we will present the amazing talent of Alessandro Quarta at the famous "Teatro della Versiliana" and in a grand finale, Andrea Griminelli, Italy's finest flutist, will bring the Festival to a glorious end.
Of course we will follow the Italian sanitary rules and make sure everyone coming will be protected and safe.
We're lucky to have a splendid open air venue, that allows us to go ahead with 7 live concerts!
This special solidarity edition, will distribute all its earnings to a food program for the needy in Pietrasanta.
Come and join us live or through a livestream that will be announced soon.
Nothing stops the music,
