Who we are
The “Associazione Settenote insieme” was born in 2013 thanks to the friendship of well-known professionals in Siena with Edoardo Catemario, international music performer. A group of people who love classical music and share the desire to spread the beauty of classical music with the greatest number of “classical music addicted”. All this into the frame of the wonderful town of Siena.
Founders and institutional positions:
Ranieri Carli (President)
Daria Fedotova (vice president)

What do we do
The “institutional” purpose of our association (as required by statute) is to promote classical music throughout the national territory and help international collaborations with organizations, associations and institutions.
We organize concerts of classical music in solo recitals and chamber music formations.
Having an artistic director “in performing career” allows us to present proposals of extreme appeal and to convey in Italy the attention of some of the greatest living musicians.
Our artistic director

He gave solo concerts in the most prestigious halls in the world: Grosser Saal of the Wiener Musikverein (Vienna), Auditorio Nacional and Teatro Real (Madrid), Wigmore Hall and St John’s Smith Square (London), Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall (New York ), Bolshoi Saal of the Philharmonia (St. Petersburg), Suntori Hall and Tokyo Opera Hall (Tokyo), Sidney Meyr Bowl and Town Hall (Melbourne), Citée de la musique (Paris), Gewandhaus (Leipzig), Teatro Coliseo (Buenos Aires) , Musikhalle (Hamburg), Auditorium Cariplo (Milano), Villa Rufolo (Ravello) etc.

MusicaSiena – La primavera senese is a chamber music festival held annually in the city of Siena in May.
Over the years we have been able to present concert artists of international standing like Brigitte Zazcek, Massimo Mercelli, Valeri Oistrakh, Francesco Manara, Alessandra Ammara, Nicholas Jones, Elizabeth Sombart, Henri and Idriss Agnel among others. The schedules have always followed nontrivial paths with particular attention to the music of 900 and the avant-garde. Large space has also been given to the baroque and 800 music, always in an attempt to deliver engaging and high-quality proposals that have received increasingly acceptance in the audience.
