“Kawai a Ledro” is a high profile summer concert season, born out of an idea and thanks to the passion and generous support of Roberto Furcht, managing director of Milan-based Furcht & C., and with the help of Angelo Foletto. Since 2017, the role of artistic director has been held by Davide Cabassi, who, as pianist, teacher, promoter and organiser, has been a protagonist of the festival from the very beginning.
The festival, mostly featuring the piano, has set itself the goal of providing a stage for solo artists from around the world, with special regard to young talents. This has led to the privileged relationship with the Bolzano-based Busoni Prize, whose winners have been regular guests at the festival. But also to the well consolidated and prestigious collaboration with the Haydn Orchestra of Bolzano and Trento.
Since 2018, the renewed vitality of “Kawai a Ledro” has manifested itself through the second edition of “Kawailiberi”, a parallel short concert season in non-traditional concert venues, distinctive of the cultural tradition and tourist hospitality of Valle di Ledro.
