The Korkyra Baroque Festival is a recently-established international music festival. Now in its second year, it will run from 7-13 September 2013. Once again, the Festival will offer a rich baroque experience in impressive culture heritage venues on the island of Korčula. Seven concerts will be held over the course of seven days, in addition to a varied entertainment program and lectures related to baroque music.
The fascinating historical village of Trevi nel Lazio (Italy, Latium) will host the second edition of Trebantiqua, international early music festival, from July 20 to August 17. A series of 6 concerts with internationally acclaimed artists will be offered at both the Collegiate Curch of St. Maria Assunta, with the celebrated 1634 Bonifazi organ, and at the main hall of the Caetani Castle under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Schinaia.
Trevi nel Lazio offers several tourist and art attractions all year round, but it is in the summer that it shows its most appealing side with a cooler climate in the luscious setting of the river Aniene's high valley, the various art events at the Caetani Castle, its narrow medieval streets of its tiny center and the other many points of interest of its territory.
Trebantiqua this year provides the usual variety of concert programs, ranging from late renaissance to the mature baroque style of the XVIII century, with a large offer of instrument sounds, from flutes to violins, harp and natural trumpet, with a special attention to the majestic historical Bonifazi organ built in 1634. A special program is dedicated to women composers on August 4.
