Riccardo Muti and the Teatro La Fenice celebrate their ‘golden wedding’ together with an extraordinary concert that will take place on Monday 23 November 2020 at 8.00 pm. Maestro Muti will direct the Luigi Cherubini Youth Orchestra in a highly prestigious event that falls exactly fifty years after his first concert in the Fenice and 17 years after the memorable concert that saw the reopening of the rebuilt theater.
Founded by Riccardo Muti in 2004, the Luigi Cherubini Youth Orchestra was named after one of the finest composers of all times, born in Italy but active all over Europe. This choice underlines the Orchestra’s vocation, combining a strong Italian identity with a natural inclination towards a European vision of music and culture. The Youth Orchestra, a privileged link between the conservatoires and the professional worlds, set up its residence in Piacenza, and elected the Ravenna Festival as its summer home. The young instrumentalists of the Cherubini Youth Orchestra are all under 30, and come from all over Italy. They were selected through audition by a committee of top musicians from prestigious European orchestras, headed by Riccardo Muti himself.
The program includes music by Franz Schubert: Overture in Italian style in C major op. 170, D591 and the “Great” Symphony No. 9 in C major, D. 944.
Location: La Fenice Opera House, Venice
