23 April-12 June 2005. Directed by Agostino Orizio, this years festival theme is Brahms: symphonies and concerts. As usual there is an impressive line-up of top class and pianists, and the festival also features orchestras as well as the likes of violinist Uto Ughi and cellist Gautier Capucon. Big piano names to look out for are those of Andras Schiff, Louis Lortie, Nicholas Angelich, Murray Perahia and Marta Argerich. A novelty this year is the jazz concert by pianist Chucho Valds and a tribute to Luciano Berio by Andrea Bacchetti.
