On the anniversary of the tragic passing of the pianist Dino Ciani, Maestro Jeffrey Swann – first prize winner of the first edition of the “Premio Ciani” at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan – will perform in a commemorative concert.
The Dino Ciani Festival, which was founded to honor the memory of this extraordinary pianist in one of his favorite parts of the world, since 2007 has brought some of the biggest international names in classical music to Cortina, and thanks to the Academy which share his name, gives young talented musicians the opportunity to participate in master classes held by world class musicians.

On the occasion of this first concert of 2014, Jeffrey Swann, as Artistic Director of the Festival since its inception, will introduce the program of the VIII Edition of the Fesival that will be held in Cortina from July 31st to August 10th of this year.
From this year forward, the Festival has taken on the mission of broadening its offerings, and presenting, alongside its concerts which nevertheless remain at the heart of the programming, a wide array of thematic cultural events. This summer, the overarching theme is inevitably the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, in which, as is well known, the Ampezzo Valley had an important role.
