International chamber music festival
Every summer, in the magical setting of Como Lake, world-famous musicians gather to create fascinating musical moments. These are not simple concerts, rather well-planned encounters which propose a new and more intimate way of experiencing music while discovering, or re-discovering, locations that become unique natural, historical, or artistic stage sets. At the Festival Musica sull’Acqua some of the most important contemporary Italian and international musicians come together to bring to life through their musical program an unforgettable experience for public and musicians alike.
The Program 2023
The Program 2023
Born from many years of experience with the festival ateliers, MACH project provides an opportunity for musicians of all ages and formations to meet and participate in a process of exploration the roots of perception, expression and creativity
This is the heart of the Music Art Creativity Hub, an Atelier project for children and youngsters, which makes the educational part of the Festival Musica sull’Acqua a unique experience. Musicians of different ages and formations share an educational experience to discover innovative artistic and pedagogical forms of expression.
It arises from the Mach Project and Orchestra as the chamber group of Music Art Creativity Hub. It explores in depth a vast and diverse chamber music repertoire, from early music to contemporary, bringing together the first chairs and the young musicians of Mach Orchestra.
It is the symphonic orchestra of MACH, a meeting place for musicians from all over the world. It develops a broader approach to the study of music with the support of other forms of artistic expression and neuro-scientific disciplines.
