This week two important debuts at Teatro Petruzzelli di Bari: Maxim Emelyanychev, who will conduct an Italian orchestra for the first time, and Gabriele Carcano, at his first experience on Bari's stage.
Although only 27 years old, Maxim Emelyanychev is Principal Conductor of the baroque ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro, well-known all over Europe for its numerous tournèe and for winning the Echo Klassik 2016 award for the recording of Haydn Symphonies and Concerts.

We now have the opportunity to build on this shared understanding and respect to create a unique sound and recognisable identity for the orchestra in Italy and beyond."

Andrea Lucchesini and Fabio Luisi with Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino

AMADEUS April 2017 :Beethoven Choral Fantasyperformed by Andrea Lucchesini, with the Orchestra del  Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, conducted by Fabio Luisi

"..con il pianoforte solista di Andrea Lucchesini, ecco poi la “Fantasia” op. 80 di Beethoven, cartone preparatorio della Nona sinfonia. Lucchesini vi sfodera un suono pieno, sontuoso, rivestito di velluto, e una spiccata sensibilità cameristica al dialogo con orchestra e voci. Perfino quando, di rado, la sua parte sta in secondo piano, lui non smette di raccogliere spunti espressivi e suggerirne a chi gli sta attorno"
