Maestro Zubin Mehta along with the orchestra and chorus from San Carlo will explore two remarkable compositions that are concert hall favourites: Leonore Overture No.3 – a grand symphonic work reflecting the drama of the entire opera, and Symphony No.9 – ‘the symphony to end all symphonies’. Symphony No.9 features well-known singers and a chorus from Teatro di San Carlo. The singers are tenor, Saimir Pirgu, soprano, Federica Lombardi, bass, Liang Li and mezzosoprano, Veronica Simeoni.
One of the world’s most highly regarded conductors, Zubin Mehta’s musical journey has led him to the forefront to some of the world’s leading orchestras, Berlin, Vienna and New York Philharmonic Orchestras.
San Carlo Orchestra’s grand history can be traced back to the San Carlo opera house which was founded in 1737, and was the recipient of well renowned works composed by Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi and many others. The orchestra has worked with famous conductors like Gui, Serafin, Santini, Gavazzeni, Böhm, Fricsay, Scherchen, Cluytens, Knappertsbusch and Igor Stravinsky.
