Piano City – one of Milan’s favorite spring-time events – comes to the city from the 17th to the 19th of May. Together with Kawai-Furcht, the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum will be one of the protagonists of this 8th edition. On Saturday the 18th at 11 A.M. the notes of Beethoven and of J.P. Rameau will vibrate throughout the house. The hands of the young and talented Alberto Chines will give life to this free concert that will fill the rooms with music just like the Bagatti Valsecchi brothers and their family members enjoyed.
The commentary is in Italian, but the music is universal!
