The European Tour of Maestro Muti together with Cherubini Orchestra has touched large European cities like Paris, Luxembourg and Geneva, and it will end at the Lingotto of Turin on May 30th.

The program:

Alfredo Catalani

Pietro Mascagni
Cavalleria rusticana / Intermezzo

Ruggero Leoncavallo
Pagliacci / Intermezzo

Giacomo Puccini
Manon Lescaut / Intermezzo

Giuseppe Martucci
Notturno op. 70 n°1

Umberto Giordano
Fedora / Intermezzo

Giuseppe Verdi
I vespri siciliani, atto III, Le quattro stagioni
I vespri siciliani / Ouverture

First of all I would like to specify that the first part of the program is dedicated to very important Italian composers. Today we can recall some of these names only through the reflection of a few well-known operas. Particularly, I mean Umberto Giordano with his Fedora or Ruggero Leoncavallo and I Pagliacci. These composers certainly stood out in the operatic scene with notable arias, but have also proved to have wonderful symphonic skills and sense of harmony and counterpoint in their interludes and overtures.
