CLASSICA. The Alba Music Festival at Alba's International White Truffle Fair
(8th edition)

Sunday 6 - 13 - 20 - 27 October, 3 - 10 - 17 - 24 November, 2019

Alba Music Festival presents CLASSICA, the Sunday morning concert, under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Nova and Jeff Silberschlag.
Eight concerts under the auspices of the Alba's International White Truffle Fair, pleasure and culture devoted of classical music lovers, in one of the periods of greatest interest and attraction of the year in Alba.

The artistic program reflects the international level of the event. We will listen to great soloists as well as the pianist Elisso Bolkvadze, "UNESCO Artist for Peace" in a program dedicated to Chopin and Debussy, and cellist Alexander Hülshoff with the pianist Joanna Przybylska playing Brahms, Dvořák and the Paganini’s Variations. Then we will pass from the complete Mozart's Quartets for piano and string trio by Andrea Bacchetti and the Maffei Quartet to the Baroque sounds of the Musici di San Giuliano; from the Trio Parsifal to the guitars of the Guitalian Quartet, in a program that also pays homage to Leonardo da Vinci, and the virtuoso Luigi Puddu. The classical ensemble of the four-hand piano duo will instead be represented by Yves Robbe and Macha Makarevich, who will perform the famous Pictures of an Exhibition by Modest Musorgskij.
