It’s 50 years since Riccardo Muti first raised a baton

His debut was at the Teatro Donizetti in Bergamo, on November 27, 1966.

They feted him at Bergamo yesterday, ahead of a concert he gave with the Luigi Cherubini Youth Orchestra. The Italian president Sergio Mattarella made a point of attending.

    Great that Mattarella, like Napolitano and Merkel and Putin, is a head of state who hears good music in person.

    The world’s greatest Verdi conductor, bar none!

    Have you heard his In The South on youtube? Those Philly strings sliding in the opening melody, lovely.
