As I wrote in my previous post - culturally speaking Southern Tuscany is often all or nothing. Two music festivals in 10 days is quite something for a small Tuscan town like Montalcino. Even more if both events are on world-class level.
Amsterdam's Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is one of Europe's prime orchestras. The selection of musicians who participate in the Musica Reale 2011 edition (July 18-20) guarantee for Chamber Music at its finest. And Montalcino's 'Teatro degli Astrusi', a little jewel of a theater, is the perfect venue for such a prestigious event.
Montalcino's Jazz & Wine festival has already been jammin' it through a fantastic first week. Concerts are starting again this Thursday night and will continue through to Sunday 24th of July. For the highlights check out my post about the festival's 2011 edition: JAZZ & WINE. And remember to bring a jumper!
