Introduction

Welcome to the 96th concert series “Micat in Vertice”. Primarily conceived for the public of Siena, our wonderful city of art, history and culture, this season is dedicated to the concept of a “journey”. A guiding theme that will accompany us through 16 exciting concerts, from baroque music to the sounds of today, with internationally renowned artists, the best young talents of the Chigiana Academy, as well as new exclusive concert proposals. International guests include pianists Roberto Cominati and Benjamin Grosvenor, the Brentano Quartet, cellist Edgar Moreau, and the Lautten Compagney. Among the great Italian performers we welcome Luciano Acocella who will conduct the OGI and Daniele Rustioni with the ORT; pianists Roberto Prosseda and Maurizio Baglini; the violinist Francesca Dego, the oboist Paolo Grazia, and the Trio Metamorphosi.
There are also original projects being proposed, from the new sounds of Martux_m to emerging names, such as the Korean pianist Sun Hee You, and the Gyldfeldt Quartet from Leipzig. A fundamental part of this season is dedicated to singing, with great stars like Monica Bacelli, Laura Polverelli, and Eleonora Contucci; the extraordinary “Mediterranean” voice of Elina Duni, and the well-established ensembles of the Chigiana: the Choir of the Cathedral of Siena “Guido Chigi Saracini” and the Chigiana Children’s Choir (CH3).
