IYMF Residency – muse Salentine Festival (Alessano, Italy)

The International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation is holding an expectional residency at the muse Salentine Festival edition 2019! With our orcherstra ambassador the Brussels Chamber Orchestra (BCO) directed by Mario Villuendas and our guest of honour, the Italian violonist Alessandro Quarta. For this special event, we also collaborate with musicians from MUS-E Italy: Davide Bonetti, Sebastiano Forte, Antonino Talamo, Eugenia Amisano and Gioele Balestrini.


The concept of our unique residence at Muse Salentine Festival, is to revisit some of the repertoire dear to Yehudi Menuhin by including elements of traditional music and bringing together classical artists and musicians from an Italian folk tradition background. The programme embraces composers Yehudi Menuhin particularly appreciated, such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Turina, Piazzolla, Villa-Lobos, Grappelli and Reinhardt as well as works from the European traditional repertoire.
