Riccardo Muti and Violeta Urmana perform Verdi, Martucci and Schubert

Europakonzert 2009, Napoli

For 20 years the Berliner Philharmoniker have marked their founding in 1882 with a concert – every year at a venue of cultural importance in a different European city. In 2009, the Europakonzert took place at the beautiful Teatro di San Carlo, Napoli, a milestone among the opera houses – and Riccardo Muti's hometown.

The charismatic conductor together with Violeta Urmana, one of the leading sopranos in the Italian dramatic genre, and the Berliner Philharmoniker present the overture of Verdi's magnificent opera "La Forza del Destino" and "La canzone dei ricordi" by Giuseppe Martucci, who died in Naples. Schubert's "Great Symphony" completes this fantastic concert at the formidable Teatro di San Carlo.
