2018 Outstanding Guest Artist Series Lineup Coming Soon!

It is a pleasure for InterHarmony International Music Festival to announce its ongoing collaboration with one of the great violinists of our time, Vadim Repin. As a part of its Outstanding Guest Artist Series, IIMF is offering students the chance to play with this legendary artist at the final concert of Session 2, on July 29th, 2017. Repin will take the stage with festival founder Misha Quint and the InterHarmony Festival Orchestra perform Brahm’s transcendent Double Concerto in a minor. Students will experience firsthand how the man Yehudi Menuhin once called the "most perfect violinist that I have ever had the chance to hear” rehearses, prepares and performs.

Alfred Brendel will join the InterHarmony International Music Festival in Acqui Terme, Italy, on July 21, 2017, to deliver a lecture on performing Mozart, a composer whose “mastery and power of expression […] seem virtually unlimited”. Brendel's talks have been roundly praised due to his uncanny ability to translate his informed and astute interpretations of the classical tradition from musical expression to verbal description. Alfred Brendel has been recognized with honorary doctorates from Cambridge, Oxford and Yale, as well as the Lifetime Achievement Awards of Edison, MIDEM Classical Awards, the Deutscher Schallplattenpreis and Gramophone Magazine, the recording industry's highest accolade.

InterHarmony International Music Festival welcomes pianist Antonio di Cristofano to its 2017 Outstanding Guest Artist Series. Di Cristofano will join founder Misha Quint on July 19 for the opening concert of Session 2 in Acqui Terme, Italy. Program highlights include Shostakovich’s searing D minor Sonata for Cello and Piano and solo piano works by Scriabin. In 2006 and 2007 Di Cristofano mades the debut in Carnegie Hall – New York and in Konzerthaus and Golden Hall MusikVerein in Wien. He has recently been appointed Guest Professor at the Xiamen Conservatory in China.
