The programme envisages two works by Giuseppe Verdi and a symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven, one of Maestro Mehta’s favourite emblematic composers, performed by the Maggio Orchestra which is one of the most famous interpreters of this repertory.
The first part of the concert will be dedicated to Verdi and therefore symbolically to Italy and will feature the Prelude from Act 1 and Act 3 of “La Traviata”, one of the Italian composer’s most famous and most widely performed operas in the world, and the symphonic overture to "La Forza del Destino", another of Giuseppe Verdi’s equally known operas that was written also as a self-standing musical composition.

The programme will continue with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony: an extremely rhythmic piece with a whirl of dance-like notes that transmit great joy to listeners. It became a great success ever since its debut, which took place in Vienna in 1813 and was conducted by Beethoven himself.

Event promoted and supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
