When I first visited the Amiata Piano festival I called beforehand to make a reservation. An unnecessary one since the concert was attended by a handful of people: two of my neighbors, the mayor of our town and me with a couple of Swiss friends in tow.

Ten years later the festival rightly celebrates its first decade and reservations have become a must for the three concert cycles that bring world class musicians to Cinigiano, a little known Tuscan town in central Maremma. Dedicated to the great Claudio Abbado, the 2014 edition will put the spotlight on some of the major names in Italy's classical music scene.

The first two cycles (called Baccus and Euterpe) take place in the Sala di Musica near Poggi del Sasso (with exclusion of the concert at the church of the Montecucco estate on the 29th of June). The final concerts at the end of August will be hold in the ColleMassari winery; its contemporary wine cellar accounting for the the architectural highlight of the festival. The concerts of the Dionisus cycle are followed by a luscious buffet - so definitely make that phone call.


BACCUS - JUNE 26 to 29
EUTERPE - JULY 24 to 27
