Mozart takes center stage in this exceptional Christmas concert, broadcast exclusively from Milan’s legendary Teatro alla Scala! Italian pianist Beatrice Rana provides the evening's opening fireworks with the Piano Concerto No. 9 “Jenamy,” dazzling from beginning to end in the virtuoso's hands. The prestigious theatre’s orchestra, conducted by Michele Mariotti, then welcomes powerhouse soprano Aida Garifullina for a thrilling performance of the motet Exsultate, jubilate, before concluding the event in style with the Viennese master’s monumental Jupiter Symphony, his 41st and final contribution to the genre.
