Merano International Music Festival    Bolzano, Italy

Merano International Music Festival

26th August - 29th September 2008

The Merano Music Festival is among the important festivals of classical music in Europe. Introduced in 1986, the year of the 150th anniversary of the renowned spa town Merano, the Music Festival has been held ever since between the end of August and the end of September. Thanks to outstanding performances it has become an international meeting point for classical music. The elegant Kurhaus provides the ideal ambience for the festival. The Kursaal was designed by the Austrian architect Friedrich Ohmann and is one of the most beautiful concert halls in Europe. It is regarded a unique example of Jugendstil architecture. Its vast and elegant interior is flooded with light, making both artists and audience feel at their ease. This is largely due to the good acoustics of the concert hall.

Rossini Opera Festival    Pesaro, Italy

Rossini Opera Festival

9th - 23rd August 2008

The aim of the Rossini Opera Festival aim is to revive, perform on stage and to study the musical heritage connected with the composer, who, by leaving all his considerable fortune to the town council of Pesaro, gave birth to the Conservatory of Music and the Foundation that bear his name today. Year by year it has become increasingly clear that as the long-forgotten scores are revived one by one, problems in their musical performance and in their staging for modern audiences become increasingly numerous and complex. For this reason the strategy of the Festival is to accompany the re-discovery of Rossini's little-known operas - and, since 1990, the exploration of all his chamber and salon works - with the systematic study of the problems involved with presenting a contemporary audience for the first time.
