We return to one of our favourite venues in Umbria, the Basilica of San Pietro in Perugia, for the closing concert of the festival. Three young pianists (who performed alone at the 2022 Trasimeno Music Festival) join Angela Hewitt in an uplifting programme of multiple piano concertos by Bach and Mozart (and Grieg’s tongue-in-cheek arrangement of a popular Mozart piano sonata). Three Fazioli concert grands at once will make quite the sound! Joined by the Orchestra da Camera di Perugia, the evening will close with one of the most popular works of all time, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5. We welcome back flautist Riccardo Cellacchi who performed for us in San Savino when he was just a boy. Now he is first flute in the Bern Symphony Orchestra.
There will be no interval.
