Bolzano Festival Bozen
Every summer, the Bolzano Festival Bozen transforms the city of Bolzano into the beating heart of classical music.
The best performers on the contemporary music scene and Europe’s most promising musicians are combustive ingredients for an intense concert series that has enlivened Bolzano every summer since 2004, presented under the auspices of the Municipality of Bolzano. Coordinated by the Busoni Foundation and dedicated to Music and Youth, the Bolzano Festival Bozen unites many partners on one platform who are able to open the doors of the future to the young hopefuls of the international concert circuit.
A festival that unites many summer events devoted to classical music, ranging from the Baroque to the contemporary: the talented young musicians of the European Union Youth Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra alongside conductors and exceptional soloists, the first-rate ensembles of the Antiqua series, and of course the pianists of the festival and of the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition undoubtedly represent the cutting edge of today’s concert scene. In the spirit of the Busoni Foundation, Bolzano thus becomes an important center of musical excellence and at the same time, a meeting place and point of interchange between the audience and the performers, between the great maestri and young talents, between concert activity and musical training.
