The Associazione Alessandro Scarlatti, charitable trust since 1948, has been founded in 1919 with the aim of making known the ancient Italian music, which in that period, was becoming popular again among those people sensitive to culture. 

In fact, not only musicians, such as Emilia Gubitosi, Franco Michele Napolitano, Vincenzo Vitale and Giovanni Tebaldini, but also writers and people of culture, such as Salvatore Di Giacomo and Maria De Sanna, founded the Scarlatti.

Two cultural traditions are at the core of the Associazione Amici della Musica di Padova: that of the Società Bartolomeo Cristofori – the concert society of the Istituto musicale Pollini, founded in 1920 – and the more recent tradition of the Centro d’Arte degli Studenti of the University of Padua, created in 1945.
In 1924, the opera Pierrot Lunaire was performed by Schoenberg in Padua. Some major composers came over Padua, such as Pizzetti, Casella, Dallapiccola, Hindemith and Stockhausen.
In 1952 started the activity of the Amici della Musica, which has been institutionalised in 1957 absorbing the Società Bartolomeo Cristofori and the concert society of the Istituto musicale Pollini. The main activity of the association is the music season that previously took place in the historic hall Sala dei Giganti al Liviano and that now is organised every year in the Auditorium Pollini of the conservatory of Music of Padua.

Its activity consists of six seasons part of different performing arts: Opera, Concerts, Dance, Prose, and so on. It organises also the Festival Aperto, dedicated to contemporary music and dance intertwined with art, literature and technologies, the international competition for string quartets “Premio Paolo Borciani”, as well as numerous exhibitions, activities for schools and conferences.

In order to carry on this extensive activity, the Foundation has a unique theatrical system: three different and stunning theatres are located on a square at the heart of the city.

At the heart of the Foundation is passion, admiration, diffusion, and production of classical music. It is a precious patrimony, like all other high forms of culture – from Shakespearean Theatre to the Sistine Chapel – that we must keep alive, protect and hand down to future generations.
Umbria counts a large presence of ancient festivals and a famous society of concerts. Italy’s central region is a fertile land for culture for many of our Foundation’s projects. Projects. Our Foundation’s program relies on high quality research. The proposal of our Foundation is inspired by the research of quality programs for out concerts: the musical languages could vary, as could our audiences, but the quality is never sacrificed.
The Foundation, even given its role of mediator between the local public and the national and international music world, promotes local musicians, who contribute to supporting a strong voice in the musical scene.

Over 1400 concerts and 88 years of history.

The Società dei Concerti di Trieste never forgets its roots. Founded in 1932, it keeps on focusing on great music and interpreters. It has hosted great conductors, such as Victor de Sabata and Herbert von Karajan, the pianists Alfred Cortot, Arthur Rubinstein, Wilhelm Backhaus, Walter Gieseking, Claudio Arrau, Edwin Fischer, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, Vladimir Horowitz and many others.
Today, the Società keeps on promoting the culture of classical music through inaugural lecture, projects dedicated to the youngsters and courses of music history.

The present-day Società del Quartetto is the product of an evolution that was initiated in 1864 by Arrigo Boito and Tito Ricordi, to “encourage and disseminate devotion to good music through public and private concerts, especially in the Quartet and Symphonic genres.”

This evolution has been innovative yet attentive to tradition, aware of having to adjust to the changed context in which it now has to function.
With respect to tradition, the Quartetto has preserved the excellence of its performers: a quick glance at the musicians who have been our guests during the first part of the new millennium confirms that they are among the few heirs of the legendary von Bülow, Rubinstein, Busoni, Paderewski, Rachmaninoff, Schnabel, Horowitz, Backhaus, Cortot, Gieseking, Serkin, Lipatti, Joachim, Milstein, Heifetz, Casals, Toscanini, Richard Strauss and the many others named in our archives.
The City of Milan has recognized these efforts by conferring the Ambrogino d’oro, the city’s greatest honour, on the Quartetto.

 

The Società del Quartetto di Vicenza is a not-for-profit association organising and promoting concert seasons, festivals and music events.

Since then, the association has transformed from a group of bourgeois and aristocrats into an association whose activities are open to a wider and wider audience.

Today, the concerts are attended by 20 000 spectators, very different in their age, education, and so on. This is also due to their wide music offer that ranges from classical to popular music.
