Massimo Bottura is considered as one of the three best chefs in the world. I have had the honour to play a concert at the same event where he presented his art of cooking. On this occasion, the concert was followed by his cooking specialties for all present guests. The event took place on 10 May 2014 at the exclusive Hotel Villa Principe Leopoldo in Lugano.
I was very lucky to attend the moment of creativity of this famous chef and to exchange experiences and skills of our two professions. I believe that in this extraordinary artist I found a great inspiration for the further progress and development of my artistic approach.

I’m very flattered to have been chosen to be part of the ensemble, which will consist of six excellent musicians from Lugano and Basel and five composers who will write music specifically for this ensemble. At the same time this will be a masterclass for composers, organized so they can get to know all the possibilities and techniques of selected instruments. After the preparation of new compositions, the official premiere will be performed at the same location where it is organized and prepared – San Quirico d’Orcia – Tuscany, Italy.

“Listen to the blue”
Si tratta proprio di una rivelazione, di un forte segnale

At the concert of this year, our guest will be a world champion accordionist. Momir Novakovic from Serbia will enchant you with his music. The victory on the “World Cup” 2008 in Glasgow dominates more than any other, where he presented himself technically perfect, but with a deep sensitivity of art.
The accordion orchestra “Grenzach”, under the direction of Tanja Rauschenberger will present a program of various composers. There will be performed compositions by Mikhail Ivanovich Glinka, Bedrich Smetana, Hans Boll, Paul Desmond and Billy Joel.
The Young Ensemble under the direction of Anne Westphal will open this evening.
