The Filarmonica della Scala announced its highly anticipated 2014-2015 schedule. This new concert season sees also the 15th year of partnership with UniCredit.
Conductor Daniel Barenboim will open the season on November 10. He will be the first of an extraordinary roster of international conductors. We are happy to announce the presence of the young Daniele Rustioni who won the "Best Newcomer of the Year" award in 2013.
The legendary Filarmonica will also continue its tradition of including a performance by a guest orchestra in its concert schedule, an event that this year will feature the renowned Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia Orchestra conducted by Director Peter Eötvös with Martin Grubinger as percussionist.
Furthermore, several initiatives developed in past seasons by the Filarmonica della Scala and UniCredit will be carried out again this season.
The public will be able to purchase low-cost tickets to attend several of the orchestra's rehearsals, thanks to the well-known "Filarmonica della Scala Meets the City" program, with support from UniCredit and the UniCredit Foundation. All proceeds from the rehearsals will be donated to local non-profit organizations.
Additionally, the children's music program, "Sound, Music!," will feature musics about water this season, building upon previous performances of music by Felix Mendelssohn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Director Francesco Micheli will again oversee this year's children's program. The "Scholaships for young musicians" will also be continued, providing scholarships to the best young conservatory students. Also the "MusicEmotion" project that brings to movie theaters, in Italy and abroad, some of the orchestra's concerts.
