21-23 June 2005. The idea of this chamber music festival began in 2002 when American violinist Robert McDuffie served as a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome. During his tenure he discovered that Villa Aurelia contained the ideal space for chamber music a large room with gilded walls and ceilings, chandeliers and windows overlooking the city. The room is also the site where composer Samuel Barber wrote Adagio for Strings. This year, performances include American bluegrass/classical music double bassist Edgar Meyer with his Trio no. 1, performing with festival musicians; the world premiere of American composer and Pulitzer prize-winner Paul Moravecs Atmosfera a Villa Aurelia, composed to celebrate the restored Villa Aurelia; and classical works by Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms and Tchaikovsky.
Address Villa Aurelia, The American Academy in Rome. Tickets and information tel. 0697617528.
