Tito Ceccherini

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

"Amadeus in Concert" is acclaimed in Sevilla

Huge success in Sevilla for John Axelrod's special adaptation of Peter Shaffer's famous play "Amadeus": "El director de nuestra sinfónica ha hecho su particular adaptación de esta pieza tan arraigada en la memoria colectiva, convirtiéndola en una exquisita combinación de teatro y concierto que ha paseado desde principios de este siglo por diversas localidades europeas. Un espectáculo para el público del nuevo siglo que aúna el placer de disfrutar de una excelente experiencia musical en torno a la agradecida música de Mozart, con el disfrute de una competente representación teatral sin elementos rancios ni estridentes que pudieran enturbiarla." wrote Juan José Roldán on Pantalla Sonora

great success of Andrea Lucchesini that with Carlo Boccadoro told us about his new album dedicated to the couples Scarlatti/Berio and Schubert/Widmann

MILAN: MAMU Magazzino Musica - 26 January 2019 at 17.30

Andrea Lucchesini talks with Carlo Boccadoros about the release of the new album with which he completes a project created with Luciano Berio.

Recorded at the end of September last year on the Audite label, Andrea Lucchesini's new CD contrasts different musical eras in a dialogue that reveals unexpected affinities. In the first part of the programme, Lucchesini relates two historically very different Italian composers: Domenico Scarlatti with six Sonatas for keyboard and Luciano Berio with his Six Encores, fulfilling a project developed by Berio and by Lucchesini himself shortly before the composer's death, to whom Lucchesini was linked by a professional and friendly relationship.

John Axelrod

John Axelrod celebrates the New Year with his Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla and the Rumenian soprano Teodora Gheorghiu:
"Faced with such a diverse and varied repertoire, it is important to admire the versatility of the orchestra adapting to each passage with the technical security of its high degree of professionalism, demonstrating to be a faithful translator of the taste of its principal conductor, John Axelrod, who has managed to enter each of the operatic passages with great mastery of the lyric genre, given his ability to direct and accompany the voice." wrote El Mundo

John Axelrod made the impossible possible!

John Axelrod conducted the monumental Mass by Bernstein at the Duesseldorfer Tonhalle: "The daring mixture of amber typical musical vocals and "West Side Story" sound, from romantic symphonic passages and gospel, jazz and soul, from acting, opera and worship, is a challenge for all. For symphonic composer, music club, street and youth choir, all of whom put on a sparkling show. Conductor John Axelrod succeeds in making the impossible possible for a "normal" concert performance. He has all the players, singers and musicians in the sights and makes the symphonic in some places even really beautiful bloom." wrote the Westdeutsche Zeitung

Valentin Uryupin at the LAC in Lugano with the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana

After the huge success on tour in the UK with the State Academy Svetlanov Orchestra in October (The Rachmaninov Second Symphony was a grand, sweeping account nonetheless, one that showcased the ensemble’s velvety strings and piquant wind and brass. Its slow movement was tender in its restraint, its finale delivered as great swelling waves of music crashing over the enthusiastic audience... scrive the Scotsman), on November 8th Valentin Uryupin makes his debut at the LAC with the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana di Lugano.

Program:
SIBELIUS Violin Concerto (sol. Sergej Khachatryan)
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony n. 2 "Little Russia"
