Historical agreement between the Accademia Musicale Chigiana (Siena) and the University Mozarteum

On February 3, 2021, the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena and the Mozarteum University in Salzburg launched a unique program: a series of master classes to deepen the study of Baroque music, beginning in the summer of 2021.
"The transmission of historical cultural heritage through the universal language of music promotes communication, cultural exchange, education as well as social inclusion. This initiative will allow us to build a common development strategy through music for a better and sustainable future. I hope that this synergy will be consolidated and developed in the coming years through the expansion of teaching and concert performances, as well as the wide participation of baroque music lovers from all over the world. ", says Carlo Rossi, President of the Accademia Chigiana.

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.
