It was announced at the Teatro alla Scala yesterday that the Filarmonica della Scala, together with UniCredit its main partner and Allianz, will perform a free concert on Saturday, June 1 in the Piazza del Duomo in Milan. Maestro Riccardo Chailly will conduct with Stefano Bollani featured on the piano.
The celebrated Chailly-Bollani duo is a model of great vitality and innovation, traits that are essential in fostering new ideas that lead to memorable musical experiences.
At UniCredit, we believe that this cross-pollination of the jazz and classical music genres paired with the spirit of opening up cultural initiatives to a wider public - which we share with the Filarmonica della Scala - are central to stimulate new ideas that, in turn, foster delight in new musical experiences.
We are particularly proud to provide the citizens of Milan with free access to this extraordinary concert, which we believe will long be remembered.
