FESTIVAL CREMA IN MUSIC
7 - 10 - 15 April 2018
The city of Crema is the birthplace of many prominent musicians and it has been the cradle of the classical music. These achievements, though, must not remain a memory of the past, locked in the niche of sitting rooms frequented only by few connoisseurs. The Musical Association Giovanni Bottesini with the Festival Crema in Music wants to bring value to the city’s important musical history through high quality events, to bring the people of Crema in contact with great musicians and to gather in the city audiences and enthusiastic from different Italian regions and from abroad as well. To rekindle the love for classical music is a challenge that Association Bottesini intends to win. The Association offers a comprehensive set of events with the objective of keeping alive in the fellow citizens of Bottesini, Petrali, Pavesi and Cavalli, a bond to a music so noble and precious that it was able to write history on the staff. Moments full of atmosphere, charming and suggestive locations, to provide the proper importance to authors worthy of being remembered and interpreted, not just in the rest of the world, but also in their city of origin.
The primary objective of Association Bottesini is to generate interest and curiosity in Crema, awaiting the 2019 VII edition of the historic Bottesini Competition, an irreplaceable trampoline for bass players from all over the world.
