Filarmonica della Scala
This live concert is no longer available. If you want to know the current list of the live concerts still available, please check the "latest concerts" column in the "live" section.
Respighi's symphonic poems are the best known pieces in Italian symphonic music, and a strong point of the Filarmonica della Scala – which performed them with Gavazzeni, Maazel, Muti and Chailly – but they are missing from Filarmonica Seasons for a number of years.
Filarmonica della Scala discovers again these pieces with Georges Prêtre, a great conductor who contributed to the history both of Teatro alla Scala and Filarmonica della Scala. An orchestra of which he had been a regular guest since its third concert, in April 1982.
