Harpsichord and Organ masterclasses by Francesco Corti

For the first time, we are organising masterclasses for harpsichord and organ under the guidance of Maestro Francesco Corti. They will take place from the 14th to the 18th of September. There will be a concert given by the participants on the 16th of September. This event links a great artist and pedagogue from the north to the historic organs of Salve and Galatina. We are grateful fo Professor Francesco Scarcella, of the Lecce Conservatory, for his input and help.
