About the Event

The word peace, next to the word orchestra, ignites hope, an idea for the future in the mind. The Peace Orchestra Project is an initiative to which Martha Argerich, always sensitive to the cause of human and civil rights, has joined, among others. The orchestra is made up of young musicians between the ages of 18 and 25 from every nation and its main purpose is to promote, through music, social and religious integration between the different communities of the planet. Together with the 24‐year‐old Italian pianist Federico Gad Crema, the great Argentinian pianist will perform the virtuosic and sparkling Concerto for two pianos by Francis Poulenc.


  • Bernstein, Leonard – Candide Overture
  • Poulenc, Francis – Concert for two pianos and orchestra in D minor
  • Campogrande, Nicola – Symphony n.2 “A new World”
  • Stravinsky, Igor Fyodorovich – L’oiseau de feu ballet suite op.20
Program is subject to change


Piano: Argerich, Martha

Although she tends to avoid the limelight, Argentine pianist Martha Argerich is widely recognized as one of the great piano virtuosos of our time.

Argerich was still in her teens when she won both the Geneva International Music Competition and the Ferruccio Busoni International Competition. In 1965, she triumphed at the seventh International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. Since then, she has become one of the foremost pianists in the world, performing primarily concerto and chamber music repertoire, but also giving the occasional solo recital.
