Cervo Chamber Festival 2017 | 8-11 june


It’s such a blessing to be a musician. The love for music and the friendship that my colleagues and I share is a binding force that makes us almost family. A few times a year we come together in different places of the world to play, discover new beautiful music, share meals together and share our musical experiences. 

Cervo has now become one of those sanctuary meeting places and I am thrilled and proud that it is the absolute highlight of the year for us! It’s been already 14 years since I first set foot in Cervo and immediately I fell in love. Such an enchanting town with an incredible history and love for music. The connection that Cervo and Cornwall have through the teachings of Sándor Végh seems almost a destiny. It is wonderful and heartwarming to receive so much support and goodwill from all those who have made our festival possible again this year. I look forward to a fantastic week with open rehearsals every day at the Oratorio di Santa Caterina, and sharing four beautiful concerts with you in Cervo and in the wonderful Santuario di Santa Croce in Imperia.
