Due to the anticipated absence of a complete return to normalcy for this summer, we will have a new format for the coming edition: Amitié a Casalmaggiore: Musica da camera.
Thirty fine young musicians from all over the world will be selected to attend Casalmaggiore over three weeks for an intensive, exhilarating and rewarding course focusing on chamber music, coached by our world class faculty, and led by mentors who have crossed the bridge from students to career professionals.
Concerts will be held four times a week in beautiful historic venues. On other days, participants are encouraged to perform solo works after preparing these with our faculty.
We also encourage 10-15 talented younger musicians under the age of 16 to take part in lessons, chamber music, and ensemble playing to get a well rounded musical experience at an early age.
This year, we will be hosting a special celebration of music by composers from the city of Casalmaggiore, in particular Andrea Zani and Carlo Zuccari, both born in the Baroque era. Every week, we will hold one concert dedicated to the works of each of these composers along with works from their contemporaries.
A few particularly talented participants will be selected to perform as soloists with our resident string orchestra, Mainzer Virtuosi, in the violin and cello concertis from Zani and Zuccari.
Although we look forward with joy and hope to an exciting revival of the glorious music our audiences have come to expect from our terrific young musicians, we must proceed with prudence and safety. This means that we will respectfully encourage all participants from outside the EU to please have travel health insurance in place before embarking on their journey to us. In addition, we ask that you be cognizant of the prevailing Covid rules in Italy which could change from day to day.
Wishing everyone good health, and a wonderful new year of renewed hope and optimism! See you in Casalmaggiore!
