Situated between Florence and Siena, Linari is a medieval hilltop 'Borgo' in the Chianti Classico area, one of the most enchanting parts of Tuscany. The first Linari Classic Musical Festival was created and established in 2003 by Airdrie Armstrong Terenghi. She is now the Festival's principal organiser and Artistic Director, and works in collaboration with the renowned musician and Festival musical director Joris Van Rijn. Every summer at Linari, the concerts range from Early to Contemporary classical music. The musicians are professionals from around the world.
Our wonderful musicians journey to Linari each year for the sheer joy and pleasure of performing and living in such exotically beautiful settings, and in the presence of the most appreciative audiences. Performance settings include picturesque local churches such as Sant'Appiano, ancient castles and private villas such as Villa Gamberaia. See our locations section for more information on directions and contact details. So as not to forget the other delights of Tuscany, we arrange an after-performance dinner where traditionally delicious Tuscan food and wines are served. Here you can meet the musicians and other friends of Linari. Visit our Programme section for the dates, locations and the music to be performed, and then go to Book Now to secure, in advance, tickets for the concerts and bookings for the dinners.
We would be pleased to welcome you and to have you join us this coming summer.
