Arezzo Organ Festival

22.08.2021 21:15 - 23:30

Arezzo Organ Festival is part of the wider "Terre d'Arezzo Music Festival", a musical event that takes place in the province of Arezzo in July and August. The Festival will present well-known artists, both Italian and foreign, with programs ranging from classics of organ literature up to romantic, modern and contemporary music, even with different instrumental formations, always with the sound of the organ at the center.

Arezzo Organ Festival, born with the intention of enhancing the immense historical, artistic and organ heritage of a territory scattered with magnificent instruments in monumental churches, offers a series of performances by international interpreters, to make ancient keyboards resonate and offer moments of unrepeatable suggestion .

The concerts, starting from Sunday 18 July, will be held at the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Donato, the Parish Church of Santa Maria, the Basilica of San Domenico, the Church of the Sacred Heart in Arezzo. To these is added the organ of the Church of S. Bartolomeo in Badia al Pino, Civitella in Val di Chiana.
Particular attention will be paid to the Centenary of the death of Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921).

In addition to the presence mode, with free admission subject to availability, the concerts will be available online with live streaming on the Facebook page of Terre d’Arezzo and on the digital terrestrial of Teletruria. (Broadcast on the Monday following the concert at 9.30 pm).
