It was announced at the Teatro alla Scala today that the Filarmonica della Scala, together with UniCredit its main partner, will perform a free concert on Monday, May 26 at 9.30 pm in the Piazza del Duomo in Milan. Maestro Esa Pekka Salonen will conduct with Lang Lang featured on the piano.
After the great success of the concert featured on June 1, 2013 with the celebrated Chailly-Bollani duo and 50.000 people in the Piazza, return Open Filarmonica, the great free concert that brings the orchestra near the people with fantastic musicians.
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.
