Eighth edition! Great novelties characterize this new edition of the Amiata Piano Festival. The event is more and more of hailed prestige and is one of the international musical appointments absolutely not to lose.

There will be three tranches of concerts, conceived by the artistic director Maurizio Baglini: Baccus, Euterpe and the by now consolidated Dionisus.

Out of the chaos of the tourism of mass, in a unique enological context, the beautiful hills of Poggi del Sasso, Cinigiano, in the province of Grosseto, are always able to give to the public and to whom approaches to these places for the first time a nice stay and an unforgettable experience. Extraordinary suggestions, unexpected views and the divine music of the Amiata Piano Festival make this landscape to a wonderfull place.

Twelve concerts and twelve events of artists of international fame, real stars of the music. The following artists honor the Amiata Piano Festival with their first participation: Danilo Rea, Andrew Lucchesini, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Massimo Quarta, Giovanni Bellucci, Monica Bacelli, Dmitri Siktovetsky, Enrico Pace, Konstantin Lifschitz, Luisa Prayer, the Choir and the Soloists of Lyon - Bernard Tetu. An important space is reserved to a duo - violin and piano - of young but already affirmed artists on the stages all over the world: Alexander Siktovetsky, younger cousin of the dean Dmitri, and Wu Qian. On great demand and after the extraordinary success of last year the following artists return: Marco Rogliano, Wolfram Schmitt Leonardy, the Quartet Rodin, and, obviously, the resident artists Silvia Chiesa and Maurizio Baglini (artistic director and founder of the festival in 2005).
