An Exhibit section especially dedicated to wind instruments developed in cooperation with the major institutions of the sector

Wind instruments have found in Cremona an important point of reference at European level. Over the years, Cremona Musica International Exhibitions and Festival have opted for a higher specialization, thus strengthening and expanding their scope with investments in specific sectors such as string instruments,  pianos, guitars, accordions and wind instruments.


To carry out this ambitious project, CremonaFiere has been counting on a close cooperation with important players  of the sector since 2016, given a precious artistic and cultural contribution to the Show with the organization of masterclasses, concerts and round tables involving remarkable international artists, speakers and testimonials.

Concerts, masterclasses, workshops and meetings for a high-level events programme

Cremona Winds aims at gathering the whole community of wind instruments professionals and lovers. To this end, the presence of leading companies of the sector is backed up and enhanced by the organization of sector-specific initiatives. The 2019 edition hosted many musical events, high in impact and level, starring renowned professionals such as the legendary American clarinetist Richard Stoltzman who was the protagonist of a masterclass and a concert, together with his wife Mika Stoltzman (marimba). The program included many concerts, masterclasses and presentations such as the CD “Bach Sanssouci”, with Massimo Mercelli and Ramin Bahrami. Moreover, the artists involved were the saxophonists Mirko Guerrini and Mattia Cigalini, the flutists Mario Caroli, Mario Notaristefano and Irena Kavcic, the bassoonist Andrea Bressan, the clarinetists Alessandro Carbonare (with the pianist Monaldo Braconi) Tommaso Lonquich (performing in trio with the harpist Annaleen Lenaerts and the flutist Irena Kavcic), and Pietro Tagliaferri (with the pianist Francesco Attesi). Among the most interesting curiosities, the Brazilian exhibitor J’Elle Stainer presented the largest saxophone in the world, certified by the Guinness World Records! Cremona Winds has laid the foundation to become the sector most important Exhibition at European level.
