The Montecatini Piano Festival was founded in 2019 by Concert Pianist and Artistic Director Aisa Ijiri, with her dream of creating a Festival Academy where young talents and professional artists would all be able to come together to perform, enjoy concerts and share in the joy of music-making, while also exploring culture, arts, cuisine and scenery. The festival is held in Montecatini Terme in Tuscany, an area renowned for its stunning Italian Art Nouveau architecture, and a spa resort famed for special therapeutic water. It was subsequently visited by great artists and composers such as Verdi, Puccini, Rossini, Richard Strauss as well as fashion designer Christian Dior.
This summer, we are delighted to launch the Montecatini Piano Concert Series (Online Edition), celebrating the winners of the 1st Montecatini International Piano Competition ; 1st Prize Wei-Ting Hsieh (Taiwan) and Arina Lazgiian (Russia) and 2nd Prize Alis An (Canada) who will all be giving a live concert from their concert platform to your home.
It has been a very difficult year on so many different levels, and we believe that music has been a healing balm for many of us during the Pandemic. To keep the life of live music going and to support our wonderful future musicians, we would like to invite you all to join our concerts, leave us a comment live and to be part of our wonderful festival family worldwide.
We are looking forward to seeing you all soon!
