About

If there is one opera house in the world synonymous with the music of Verdi it is the Teatro alla Scala, Milan. This concert from the sumptuous auditorium of La Scala was given in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth and comprises some of his best-known overtures alongside rarer repertoire from the operas.

The concert also celebrates Riccardo Chailly’s appointment as La Scala’s Principal Conductor (effective January 2015) and Music Director (from January 2017), following in such famous footsteps as Arturo Toscanini, Tullio Serafin and Victor de Sabata.

The Filarmonica della Scala have this music in their blood and under Chailly deliver performances of scintillating precision and panache.

This DVD complements the studio recording ‘Viva Verdi’ released in 2012. Of that release The Sunday Times wrote: “It’s hard to imagine this music better played or conducted than here.” Gramophone said: “The orchestra has been breastfed on the music and the conductor brings that little extra bit of telling exuberance to proceedings...the playing simply fizzes”.
