BargaJazz Festival 2014 – Dedicated to Paolo Fresu

BargaJazz Festival 2014 – Dedicated to Paolo Fresu

Here are the first previews of the 27th edition of The BargaJazz Festival, held for the first time in 1986 as a competition for arrangement and composition for jazz orchestra.


The competition will be dedicated to the arrangements of Paolo Fresu who will be the festival’s guest of honor.  Fresu will be presenting in Barga, in addition to playing with the BargaJazz Orchestra, his work “Mistico Mediterraneo” (Mystical Mediterranean) in the context of the international project “Sonata di Mare” (Sonata of the Sea) with Daniele di Bonaventura and the polyphonic choire “A. Filetta” from the island of Corsica.


Barga IN Jazz has been confirmed again for this year (one of the most engaging outdoor events of the Barga Summer scene) as well as Barga OUT Jazz (a unique evening organized in collaboration with local wineries).


Masterclass and practical and theoretical seminars are also anticipated. 

After last year’s huge success, Enojazz, at the Hotel Villa Libano, has also been confirmed for this 2014 edition.  It’s a place dedicated to Jam Sessions where musicians and enthusiasts gather to play until the small hours of the morning.


In fact, over the years, Enojazz has become a little-big festival within a festival, with art exhibitions and other events committed to the sovereignty of improvisation.
