The International ArtePiano Concert Series forms an integral and significant part of the festival 

Our audiences experienced 6 world class performances by artists such as South African soprano Erica Eloff, French-Canadian clarinetist Myriam Carrier, Italian piano duo Giorgia Tomassi and Carlo Maria Griugoli, British jazz pianist Phil Merriman, and the winner of the 2nd International ArtePiano Competition – American pianist Ruochong Steven Cui. Opening night saw our faculty of six concert pianists playing works for 2 to 12-hands. They are fellow artists Yuki Negishi (Japan/UK) Roberto Russo (Italy), Mark Nixon(South Africa/UK), Liezl-Maret Jacobs (South Africa/Ireland) and Pavle Krstić (Serbia/Austria). 

One evening was dedicated to the musicians of Castelnuovo di Farfa during which the local choir performed (accompanied by Georgian pianist Tamar Tamuna Bardavelidze-Töre) and youth band played. The concert opened with a tribute/homage to the Italian composer Domenico Bartolucci who was a former director of the Sistine Chapel Choir at the Vatican. This commemoration, lead by Roberto Russo (who was a student in composition of Bartolucci) marked the 10 year anniversary of Bartolucci’s death in 2013. 

All concerts took place in the beautiful Chiesa San Nicola di Bari which is situated in the historic centre of the town.
