Presentation

Now in its nineteenth edition, the Capraia Festival has become an unmissable appointment not only for fans of 'cultured' music, but also for all those who, frequenting the island, wish to find stimulating musical proposals set in a particular and evocative context. Counted by the press among the quality summer festivals, from the very first edition the festival reveals the very spirit of Capraia, inspired by culture, relaxation and spontaneity. Again this year, like last summer, we will have the opportunity to participate in a fortnight of events, one in July and one in August, with the opportunity to become familiar with the beauty of the island, thanks to the inclusion of the artistic project itself in the architectural and natural setting of the island. Well-established musicians and young talents meet here, even to make music together, sometimes in the same scenic locations.
This musical activity also takes into account the cultural needs of the island's albeit relatively large resident population, which year after year proves to enjoy it.
Informing the programming of the 15 concerts in 2024 are a number of themes that we consider to be important, as well as sure to please the audience. An initial focus on the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, featured in the concert and workshop by Mario Brunello; the music of our time: we will hear pages by Jane Vignery, Nino Rota, Eugène Bozza, György Ligeti, Giuseppe D'Amico, Luciano Berio, John Cage, Emanuele Delucchi, Krzysztof Penderecki, etc. also world premieres (a work by Fabio Vacchi commissioned expressly by the festival, a work by Massimiliano Damerini and one by Giuseppe D'Amico); the collaboration, in terms of the space given to young concert performers (seven concerts out of fifteen), with cultural entities of primary importance such as the Accademia di Santa Cecilia and the Mozarteum in Salzburg; the presence of important names in international concert performing: in addition to Mario Brunello, pianists Pietro De Maria and Benedetto Lupo (who also returns to hold a masterclass again), and violinist Pavel Berman in a duo with Riccardo Risaliti. The contribution of jazz is ensured by the presence of one of the best Italian pianists in this field, Antonio Faraò..
