Trasimeno Music Festival

In its first year, the leading Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt has founded a festival at Lake Trasimeno. From the 2nd to the 8th July Angela Hewitt performs in a series of concerts with other upcoming musical talents. The 6th July Concert takes place in the Castle of the Cavalieri of Malta at Magione and the programme is a string quartet by Haydn, quintet for guitar and strings by Boccherini and a piano quintet by Shostakovitch. The 7th July concert takes place in the Palazzo Ducale in Gubbio when Angela Hewitt plays the Goldberg Variations, returning to the Castle at Magione on the 8th for a string quartet by Mozart, a string quartet by Szymanowski and a piano concerto by Chopin. A new event not to be missed and hopefully one to be repeated in the coming years��
