The MiTo International Music Festival is being hosted in Milan and Turin in the beautiful country of Italy from the 3rd to the 24th September this year. Alexandra from NeoENews.Com sent me a press release explaining that "Among the many big names at MITO, there will be Lang Lang, who is performing at Palasharp in front of 8,000 people; Billy Cobham, the king of jazz; Maurizio Pollini,Cecilia Bartoli and Salvatore Accardo...Alongside the official programme, there is also a circuit of alternative events similar to
those at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Fête de la Musique or Fuori Salone in Milan: parks,train and Metro stations, universities and cloisters will all host improvised events at the “MiToFringe”."
It sounds like it's going to be a spectacular event. I wish I could go but I'm flathunting in London for my second year at Uni. Maybe next year! I love Lang Lang, he's a very unique Pianist with real enthusiasm for what he does and just by listening to him you can feel his passion for his music. I love watching clips of him playing.
