|Italian violist Giuliano Carmignola|
By tradition the winter concert season in Siena starts on the 22nd November (the day of St. Cecilia, patroness of musicians), to celebrate the founding of the Micat In Vertice Chamber Music Institution in 1923. A brainchild of Count Guido Chigi Saracini, Micat in Vertice is going into its 90th season this year. The opening concerts are a fine tribute to this round anniversary. The first evening this month will see superb Italian violinist Giuliano Carmignola playing his Stradivari in company of the Orchestre de Champs-Eysées. Wheras the second concert will be given by Latvian born star violist Gidon Kremer.
