La Scala orch to make Bolshoi debut (instead of BBC Proms)main
Riccardo Chailly is taking the Filarmonica della Scala on a 10-stop Europe tour, including a first visit to Moscow.
A date will have been offered to the BBC Proms, which evidently declined. Who needs La Scala at the Proms?
Riccardo Chailly and Filarmonica della Scala will return to Europe for a 10-concert, August 21- October 2, to include stops in major musical cities in Austria, Germany, France and Luxembourg. The FDS’s 2016 European tour will feature the orchestra in performances at Gstaad (Festivalzelt, 21/8), Salzburg(Großes Festspielhaus 22/8), Moscow (Bol’šoj 15/9) Essen (Philharmonie 24/9), Vienna (Musikverein 1/10). Chailly leads the Orchestra in Cherubini’s Symphony in D major, Verdi’s Four Season from Vespri Siciliani and Rossini’s Ouverture from Guillaume Tell.
Pianist Daniil Trifonov will join Filarmonica della Scala and Riccardo Chailly for concert in Dortmund(Konzerthaus 25/9), Luxembourg (Philharmonie, 26/9), Hamburg (Konzertsaal 28/9), Baden Baden(Festpielhaus 30/9) while Martha Argerich for the FDS’s debut at Philarmonie Paris (2/10), both performing Schumann’s Piano Concerto.
