Historical agreement between the Accademia Musicale Chigiana (Siena) and the University Mozarteum
in 2021, the Baroque Summer Academy will be held in Siena from August 30 to September 5, 2021, as part of the 90th Chigiana Summer Academy, with five courses led by professors from the University Mozarteum Salzburg: Baroque oboe by Alfredo Bernardini, harpsichord by Florian Birsak, transverse flute by Marcello Gatti, viola da gamba by Vittorio Ghielmi and Baroque voice by Andreas Scholl. Vittorio Ghielmi, director of the Institute of Early Music of the University Mozarteum Salzburg, is enthusiastic about this project: " I am very grateful and proud to find in this agreement two aspects that characterize my professional and personal life: as director of the Institute at the Mozarteum, the mission as a musician and artist, and as an Italian, the connection with the cultural tradition of the cities of Monteverdi, Vivaldi, Rossini.
