Tito Cecccherini at La Fenice in Venice

On Friday 29 June, Giorgio Battistelli's opera "Riccardo III" is performed for the first time in Italy at Teatro La Fenice in Venice. This premiere will be conducted by Tito Ceccherini, one of the most appreciated orchestra conductors on an international level, especially in the '900 and contemporary repertoire. The production is directed by Robert Carsen.

The work is inspired by Shakespeare's character of Richard III, who takes on dramatic and ironic features in the composer's score. According to Tito Ceccherini, "Giorgio Battistelli is a composer who – in particular in his theatre works – is able to use a wide variety of means with great ductility, fantasy and naturalness. In such a complex work as this, in which Shakespeare’s text has been rigorously adapted, this ductility proves to be extremely useful and prolific [...]".

Ricccardo III will be staged in Venice for five evenings and the performance on Tuesday, July 3 at 19.00 will be broadcast live on Rai Radio3.

Tito Ceccherini triumphs at the Frankfurt Opera

Another resounding success for Tito Ceccherini at the Frankfurt Opera with a new production of "From the house of the dead" by Janacek, which debuted last Sunday and whose performances will continue until April 29.

A former guest of the German theatre, Tito Ceccherini has led the orchestra and the singing company through the complex pages of Janacek, "highlighting the many layers of colour inherent in music in an authoritative and extremely precise way, without ever losing sight of the overall architecture of the opera" (Deutschlandfunk-Kultur).
The French magazine ResMusica also highlighted how "the great strength of the representation comes mainly from the hole (...) thanks to the particularly innovative direction of the Italian conductor Tito Ceccherini...".

Tito Ceccherini

Great enthusiam of the media for Tito Ceccherini's conducting of Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail new production at the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse:

Dans la fosse, le chef italien Tito Ceccherini fait des merveilles. L’Orchestre du Capitole en habits baroques nuance comme dans un rêve et colore avec délicatesse l’univers sonore mozartien. Ce sont à la fois les nuances et les couleurs, les phrasés et le sens du théâtre qui donnent la force à cette interprétation orchestrale de pur bonheur. Et il est connu combien d’instruments obligés sont requis dans cet opéra ! Nous saluons chaque instrumentiste jouant comme en habit de fête.  L’énergie et le plaisir partagés entre fosse et scène sont les grandes qualités de Tito Ceccherini. (Hubert Stoecklin on Classiquenews)

Tito Ceccherini dirige pour la première fois cet ouvrage avec un style incroyable" wrote Robert Pénavayre on, Tito Ceccherini returns at the Théatre du Capitole de Toulouse to conduct Mozart Die Entführung aus dem Serail.

Excellent review for Tito Ceccherini on Diapason

«Dès les premiers ostinatos mélodico-rythmiques de l'Alborada del Gracioso, une sensation de plénitude sonore s'empare de l'auditeur. Restitution pointue et sans lourdeur, avec une frénésie de couleurs dans la danse électrisante des épisodes extrêmes, tandis que les violents contrastes de nuances de la partie centrale renforcent l'aveuglante lumière de l'orchestre de Ravel.
[…] Dès l'Adagio liminaire [Symphony n°11 by Shostakovich], le chef italien Tito Ceccherini, que l'on n'attendait pas forcément dans ce répertoire, suggère des attentes, des clairs-obscurs, tandis que l'approche va devenir sans cesse plus implacable dans les vagues hymniques ou obsessionnelles des mouvements suivants. Avec notamment d'excellents pupitres de bois, cors, cordes médianes et graves, l'Orchestre national Bordeaux Aquitaine offre une interprétation flamboyante et précise, impressionnante de souffle et d'engagement.» wrote Patrick Szersnovicz on Diapason
