The exceptional presence of Riccardo Chailly and the Orchestra of La Scala in Milan.
Each year, one of Mahler’s nine symphonies rings out in the Grand Théâtre, forming part of the Easter festival’s history and identity.
This year, the exceptional presence of Riccardo Chailly and the Orchestra of La Scala in Milan brings international excellence to the romantic repertoire. The Italian conductor, a regular guest in Paris, Vienna and Berlin, is known for his lyricism and musical phrasing, and this evening will propose his vision of Symphony n°7, one of Mahler’s most demanding works, at the paroxysm of his modernity. The basses will roar and the brass section sparkle, smoothly orchestrated by the Italian maestro’s experienced baton, as he brings his eminence to a grandiose repertoire.
This concert is generously supported by Madame Aline Foriel-Destezet, grand mécène.
