  • Riccardo Chailly directs vivid Italian musicality

    The Filarmonica della Scala, the orchestra of Milan’s world-renowned opera house La Scala, has been lauded as Italy’s finest symphony orchestra.

    Its partnership with the historic opera house’s Music Director Riccardo Chailly, famed for his own towering musical personality and vital musicmaking, summons performances of astonishing potency and subtlety.

    Together, they look to Eastern Europe and beyond for the first of two concerts. They are joined by violinist and violist Julian Rachlin for the elegance and dancing rhythms of Bartók’s Viola Concerto, before Shostakovich’s remarkable Twelfth Symphony. They open with the warm nostalgia of Enescu’s lyrical Second Romanian Rhapsody.
