Dear Early Music Students and Enthusiasts,

We would like to invite you to our Early Music summer course which will take place in a beautiful town of Bertinoro (Italy) in August 8 - 14 2019.

Just like last year, the first part of the course is going to be focused around ensemble playing, but it is also possible to apply as an individual participant. The participants of our masterclasses will have the opportunity to present themselves to the audience during two student concerts. The quality of the ensemble performances will be evaluated by members of the Italian baroque group La Risonanza. The outstanding ensemble will be granted a concert performance in La Risonanza’s series in Palazzina Liberty in Milan in 2020.

Chamber music course will be followed by an orchestral project filled with baroque suites and concerti grossi repertoire, led by Fabio Bonizzoni and La Risonanza and will be crowned by the final concert. 

The most exceptional students will be invited to join La Risonanza’s orchestral training scheme in the following season. This project is called La Primavera de La Risonanza.

La Primavera de La Risonanza was launched in 2018. In November last year the orchestra performed the first half of Vivaldi's L'Estro Armonico during the festival Sostenibilità ad Arte. The concert took place in Milan and this year the adventure with L'Estro Armonico will continue under the guidance of John Holloway and Fabio Bonizzoni. The participation in this project might lead to future appointments with La Risonanza.

All participants are highly encouraged to stay for the entire duration of the course, attend the concerts (free of charge), perform and spend beautiful time with us.


The La Risonanza Early Music Academy is a result of cooperation between Fabio Bonizzoni's La Risonanza and the Romagna Musica and is part of Entroterre Festival of Music, Culture and region of Emilia-Romagna.
