HAPPENED TODAY - On August 5, 1958, the pianist and composer Joseph Holbrooke died in London

HIGH LAKE, HIGH MUSIC.
The Association ClassicAreale organizes in Gravedona ed Uniti (CO), in August, the Gravedona Chamber Music Festival, generated by the commitment of Dr. Clara Curtoni and the musical sensibility of the renowned cellist Jacopo Di Tonno.
The event is part of the panorama of European festivals dedicated to chamber music, proposing internationally renowned artists and groups to audiences.
The Honorary Presidency of the Festival has been enthusiastically accepted by the cellist Enrico Dindo, the ideal reference point for the project and the spirit of this festival.
The guest of honor will be the violinist Francesca Dego, originally from Colico and an honorary member of the association, who , by participating, supports the festival created with the aim of combining the charm of music with the natural beauty of the shores of Lake of Como.
Gravedona ed Uniti, set between the waters of the lake and the plain of the Liro stream, on the ancient Via Regina connecting Chiavenna to the Milanese plain, will offer the public the ideal setting that can only come from the harmonious fusion of nature and history.
The Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, next to the homonymous church of Augustinian origin founded in 1467, and Palazzo Gallio, isolated, on a promontory overlooking the lake, initially built by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio will be animated by the magic of Euterpe, the Muse of Music.
There will be lots of emotions for everybody’s eyes and minds. Music is indeed a medicine for the soul.
