Music: Stresa Festival 50th Anniversary Autumn Concert Schedule



While we're talking about music, it's time for another reminder about the Stresa Festival and a list of the remaining concerts. This third part of the annual festival is dedicated to celebrating the 50th anniversary of the event. It's been 50 years since the first festival was organized in Stresa by Italo Trentinaglia, you can read about that in this post, and if you are in Stresa you can stop by the Palazzo dei Congressi now through September 4 to see the special exhibition celebrating the fifty years of the Settmane Musicali di Stresa.

This autumn part of the Festival, entitled 'Notes from a Journey', Note di Viaggio, began last Sunday with the concert 'Happy Birthday Festival!' at the Congressi by the Stresa Festival Orchestra, with Festival director Gianandrea Noseda conducting. Burvenich, Sostakovic and Brahms were played.  Monday evening fortunate concert-goers listened to 'Brass on the Island', performed by London Brass in the Loggia del Cashmere on Isola Madre. And last night, 'One Night at Bach's', at the Chiesa Madonna di Campagna in Verbania....

Tonight, Italian Wonderbrass will be performing 'World of Sound', Mondo di Suoni, at Castello Visconteo in Vogogna. And these are the concerts that remain on the 2011 schedule:
