Grandezze & Meraviglie 2019 – XXII Festival Musicale Estense

concerts, conferences and concert-lessons from August to December




The most longstanding early music festival in Emilia Romagna offers for the XXII edition a rich program of concerts and numerous parallel activities: conferences, lessons-concerts and meetings with schools.

The enhancement of early and baroque music heritage, with particular attention to the Este territories and the ducal collections, conducted in terms of research and interpretative innovation, has earned the festival the characteristics of uniqueness and universality at the same time.

Grandezze & Meraviglie can count on several collaborations with Italian and foreign festivals and conservatories and it is part of the European Early Music Network (REMA).

The Festival was awarded with the 28th Premio Abbiati della Critica Musicale as “best initiative of 2008” and with the prestigious “EFFE Label 2019-2020”, recognition given by the European Festival Association to the most authoritative cultural initiatives of the European Union.

In 2018, Grandezze & Meraviglie was part of the 400 events listed by the MiBACT during the “European Year of Cultural Heritage”.
