For the sixth consecutive year, UniCredit will support Sound, Music!, the music project created by Filarmonica della Scala for primary school children.
This year's program, overseen by Director Francesco Micheli, will present Pictures at an Exhibition by the Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky, which was inspired by the work of his dear late friend, artist and architect Viktor Hartmann.
Based on a collection of Mr. Hartmann's drawings and watercolors, Pictures at an Exhibition is an example of how music can interact with other forms of art. In this case, we can listen to see different images and view paintings to better hear music.
To go with theme of this year's program, a selection of artwork from the UniCredit Art Collection - La Guerra by Giacomo Balla, Ritorno al castello avito by Giorgio De Chirico and Donne di Neapolis by Mimmo Jodice, just to mention a few - will be exhibited during the concert.
This year, Sound, Music! will take place in two stages. First, a series of workshops will be held for students at UniCredit Tower Hall. These music lessons will be taught by Maestro Marcello Sirotti and a small orchestra consisting of musicians of different ages, describing to the young audience the main instruments that make up an orchestra.
In the second stage, concerts will be held at the UniCredit Pavilion. These three shows will take place March 31 and April 1-2. The first two concerts will be reserved exclusively for participating schools, while the the last one will be open to the public.
The Piccola Filarmonica della Scala will perform Pictures at an Exhibition with the score by Maurice Ravel, conducted by Maestro Alessandro Ferrari and under the direction of Francesco Micheli.
