Biography: 'Indian Summer in Levoča' (in Slovak ‘Levocke babie leto’) is a major annual international festival of music and the arts set in the historic east Slovakian town of Levoča, since June 2009 a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its surroundings in the ancient county of Spiš. Restoring the region's centuries-old tradition as a crossroads of arts and culture, it has already established itself as one of the leading annual cultural celebrations of central Europe. The Festival is a not-for-profit organisation, supported by the town of Levoča, grants, sponsorship and festival patrons.
The 2012 Festival (September 28 - October 4) maintains our tradition of bringing to audiences great music and music unfairly neglected, played by leading musicians from all over Europe. We welcome both returning artists such as the Stamic Quartet and the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra, together with those who will be appearing at Levoča for the first time, including the Richter Prize-winning pianist Eldar Nebolsin and the Bartók Qaurtet. We can be certain that between them they will create an unforgettable musical experience in one of the most beautiful, historic and undiscovered corners of Europe.
