Venice International Music Festival
We feel privileged to have been entrusted with producing the Venice International Music Festival, a new and ambitious initiative that aims to turn Venice into the world’s center of classical music for one week in September of 2021. In coordination with the local authorities, the festival intends to compliment Venice’s cultural highlights, such as the Venice Art Biennale and the Venice Film Festival. The festival also has the enthusiastic support of the families that own the Palazzos where some of the greatest composers lived, performed, and composed. Featuring the most renowned classical artists from the international music scene performing in Venice’s most stunning and exclusive locations, Epicenter Venice brings to life the music of Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart, Rossini, Liszt, Wagner, Tchaikovsky, Fauré, Ravel, Poulenc, Stravinsky, and many others, in the private homes and theatres that welcomed them, nurtured them, and inspired them. Thanks to the combination of the performers' musical excellence with the unique backdrop of art, architecture, history, and splendor that only Venice can provide, the Venice Music Festival is poised to stand alongside the great music festivals of the world.
