23-31 July 2010. This is a delightful chamber music festival organised by the cultural association of the same name, which was founded in 1989 in memory of Antonio and Iris Origo, who dedicated their lives to the development and appreciation of the Val d'Orcia. It is based at Villa La Foce and in a nearby mediaeval castle, Castelluccio di Pienza, and spreads a love of music and art through concerts, meetings, and artistic events in the many beautiful venues of southern Tuscany. The new musical director is Kathryn Stott, a musician with valuable experience of running major festivals. The 2010 programme includes a line-up of internationally-acclaimed musicians in an eclectic series of chamber music concerts plus an incursion into the world of early music with a concert curated by Nicky Swallow. A multi-faceted orchestral programme and other events enrich the week
