The Virtuoso & Belcanto instrumental programme is devoted to:

  • Piano
  • Violin
  • Viola
  • Cello
  • Chamber music

Every effort is made to give all students the opportunity to work with all professors present. If possible, you will study with all professors of your own instrument and all professors from the chamber music program, who will alternate during the two weeks of activities. It is possible to indicate one or more preferred professors. In the case of certain professors’ classes being over-subscribed the professor will make the selection of students for his or her class jointly with the festival’s artistic direction.

This organisational structure is what makes our educational program truly unique.

The chamber music course is open exclusively to pre-formed ensembles.

Students can apply for both the chamber music and instrumental courses.

Masterclasses (piano, violin, viola, cello and chamber music) will be held both in person, from Lucca, and online, via a dedicated platform.
