From Ligeti's Le Grand Macabre at the Opernhaus in Zurich to Haydn's Il Mondo della Luna at the Philharmonie in Paris, the extraordinary artistic journey of Tito Ceccherini.
“Quelle chance pour les protagonistes de ce Mondo della luna d’avoir pu travailler avec un chef tel que Tito Ceccherini ! Dès l’ouverture, sa preste baguette apporte un allant et une pulsation qui perdurent tout au long de la représentation. Les jeunes instrumentistes de l’Orchestre du Conservatoire (Sarah Jegou au violon solo) forcent l’admiration par le relief, le tonus et les couleurs d’une exécution stylée. Ils disposent il est vrai du guide idoine en la personne du maestro italien” wrote Alain Cochard on ConcertClassic
Superb performance of Tito Ceccherini in Le Grand Macabre at the Opernhaus Zurich:
"A master of his craft, conductor Tito Ceccherini confidently took the Philharmonia Zürich through two uninterrupted hours of Ligeti’s hellish and high-water sounds. [...] don’t see this production if you’re expecting something ordinary. Ordinary, it is not." wrote Bachtrack
We are glad to share what the Opernhaus Zürich announced today: "The internationally celebrated conductor Tito Ceccherini takes over the musical direction of «Le Grand Macabre» instead of Fabio Luisi, who unfortunately has to cancel for health reasons."

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.
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.

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...".
