Since 2001 the University of Insubria has organized its own Concert Season in Varese. The Artistic Director Corrado Greco has assembled impressive programs with artists of high reputations and excellent repertoires. The programs have included prestigious chamber groups like the Borodin Quartet, I Virtuosi Italiani, the Parma Trio, and the Savinio Quartet. Bruno Canino, Laura de Fusco, Cyprien Katsaris, Arturo and Rodolfo Bonucci, Cristina Ortiz, and the Jazz player Stefano Bollani have performed as solo artists. The following Orchestras have also been guests at Insubria: Milano Classical Chamber Ensemble, Sanremo Symphonic Orchestra, RAI National Symphonic Orchestra and Italian Swiss Orchestra, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, John Storgards and James Setapen.
The concerts are designed not only for expert audiences, but also for those who wish to experience classical music for their first time. In fact, concerts offer different musical genres, which embrace not only symphonic and chamber music, but also influences of jazz and latin music.
Every single concert offers different listening levels and many new and innovative pieces. The programs feature musical masterpieces of the major repertoires and also newly discovered pieces from different musical periods and contemporary musical groups and genres.The Insubria Concerts, which are complimentary, are considered by the Varese community one of the most valued and talked about cultural events in the City.
