2020 PROGRAMME EN

LINK TO: ARTISTS 2020 

Determined to turn this year’s considerable challenges into an opportunity for creativity and innovation, we have planned a hybrid ‘live and virtual’ festival. The silver lining may be that we are very likely to reach a much wider audience than originally intended. We plan to host two LIVE concerts, each for 120-140 socially-distanced guests, in the large La Foce courtyard. Details of logistics regarding government regulations on distancing and other safety precautions will be shared with our public on a regular basis. Both of these live concerts will be filmed professionally, not only for those unable to attend but also in order to share them with a new and diverse audience around the world. We will also record other musical content, both prior to and during the concert period, for exclusive release during the festival.

Our Oltre la Musica events – including interviews, a garden tour, a unique online dinner experience and other surprises – will be incorporated into the concert webcasts.

We are delighted to be welcoming both old and new friends to perform at this year’s Incontri: 

Alessio Bax (Artistic Director), Lucille Chung, Nelson Goerner piano
Francesca Dego, Julie Eskar, Daishin Kashimoto, Henning Kraggerud violin
Ettore Causa, Lawrence Power viola
Antonio Lysy cello
Emmanuel Pahud flute
Sergei Nakariakov trumpet and flügelhorn
Lukasz Kuropaczewski, Petter Richter
guitar
Chen Reiss
mezzosoprano


THE GOURMET-CONCERT EXPERIENCE
 

We are planning three TV-dinner-style evenings to include the concert, dinner and interviews, all from the heart of the Val d’Orcia. Each webcast will last roughly one hour and fifteen minutes and they will be transmitted at dinner time in 3 different time zones: Rome, New York, and Los  Angeles. We have commitments from famous chefs to offer fun and easy menus (tailor-made for Incontri) for our audience to make at home; instructions will be available on the website.
