There is nothing more inspirational than listening to great music in beautiful settings in the world.
Musical Landscapes in Tuscany offers that opportunity. In its tenth year, the 2023 festival will feature music from creative giants such as Bach, Brahms, Mozart, Boccherini, Haydn, Chopin, Dvorak, Shostakovich and Gershwin.
The memorable musical moments of the festival will be created by some of the world’s great artists performing on the stages of San Quirico and throughout the Val d’Orcia in Southern Tuscany. There will be concerts given by musicians who have graced the world’s most illustrious concert halls and recorded for the most important recording labels for decades as well as younger performers who have recently won international competitions. This year’s festival will host musicians from Italy, England, USA, Germany, South Korea, France and Japan.
The 2023 edition of Paesaggi Musicali Toscani will feature two gold medal winners of the world’s prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition. Mario Brunello, the only Italian to ever win the top prize at the Tchaikovsky, will open the festival together with the accordionist Ivano Battiston. The latest and youngest winner ever, the American cellist, Zlatomir Fung, will perform a solo recital. Other concerts of note are the program with one of our ensembles in residence, il Quartetto Indaco, together with the clarinetist Tommaso Lonquich, a piano recital with Mariangela Vacatello; unaccompanied Bach with Amandine Beyer; a program of Asian Music with Ariana Kim, Young-Nam Kim and Kristen Choi; two programs with l’Orchestra da Camera Milano Classica; a performance with the Trio Furibondo; the sunrise concert with the winner of the Hudson Valley String Competition and the final concert with the Quartetto Prometeo in collaboration with the Accademia Chigiana.
