LacMus is an international classical music festival held every summer on Lake Como, one of the most fascinating places in Italy.
Founded by pianist Louis Lortie and conductor Paolo Bressan, the festival combines together the magic of music with the uniqueness of the venues and landscapes on Lake Como.
The festival is held in venues with a unique historical, architectural and scenic value, providing the audience a way to live an immersive musical experience surrounded by nature, architecture, art and history.
Here are some of them: Villa Carlotta, Villa del Balbianello (FAI heritage – the National Trust of Italy), the Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine del Soccorso on Sacro Monte di Ossuccio (inscribed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites), the historical palace Grand Hotel Tremezzo with its “Belle Époque” gardens, the Lake Como Greenway, Isola Comacina and Villa Melzi d’Eril in Bellagio.
The festival features some of the most internationally recognized music artists, together with some of the most promising young students of prestigious music academies. The result is the creation of new synergies between young talents and famous artists.
Among the artists hosted so far: Ton Koopman, Emmanuel Pahud, Les Vents Français, Richard Galliano, Christiane Karg, Sophie Koch, Renè Barbera, Maurizio Baglini, Adorno Quartet, Andrew von Oeyen, Symphonic Orchestra Giuseppe Verdi of Milan, Roman Burdenko, Augustin Dumay, Miguel da Silva, Giuliano Carmignola, Philippe Quint, Pavel Berman and, of course, Louis Lortie and Paolo Bressan.
Beyond Music: Culture and Innovation
LacMus Festival is not just about music: creating and spreading “culture” in a wide sense is a key point of its mission.
In history, Lake Como was often chosen as a destination for traveling or staying by renowned artists and writers. Therefore the festival’s program often includes exhibitions underlying the evident links between history, art, music and this territory, becoming a source of great research value.
The festival is also supporting cultural development and innovation.
Actually, the festival’s programs are featuring:
» the wi-fi headphones experience: a way to listen to music while exploring and walking through the venues;
» the sunrise concerts: breathtaking experiences with breakfast and yoga sessions included;
» LacMus Educational: concerts with music education purposes.
