La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra Presenta

"Concert for Milan 2022"
Sunday June 12, 2022 (9.30 pm) back on Concert for Milan, the big date in Piazza del Duomo with the La Scala Philharmonic and the principal manager Riccardo Chailly. The Concert for Milan this year crosses the finish line of the tenth edition, marking a double anniversary for the Scaligera Orchestra that is celebrating forty years of activity, and meets the general public without limitations after the two limited capacity editions due to the health emergency.

It's a lively program, with a high rate of energy, the one chosen by Riccardo Chailly with the Filarmonica della Scala to celebrate the double anniversary: "It will be a special musical journey - explained Maestro Chailly - an interaction between musical geniuses, with three great authors who mark the Historic twentieth century, Manuel de Falla, Maurice Ravel is George Gershwin", A journey starting from the foray into the atmospheres of Spanish music, with theInterlude and the Dance from the lyric drama The short life of Manuel de Falla and the Spanish rhapsodies op. 54 of Maurice Ravel until the homage to George Gershwin, with the famous and evocative notes of his symphonic poem An American in Paris and the suite Catfish Row from Porgy and Bess.

At the opening of the concert, the new piece commissioned to Nicola Campogrande on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Orchestra, Definitely cheerful, which opens with a fanfare of trumpets - “a positive piece, as Chailly defined it, with an open and accessible language”, conceived in harmony with the place and occasion of the first listening.

Piazza Duomo will once again transform into a magnificent stage under the stars, welcoming the Concert for Milan 2022, a great music festival dedicated to all Milanese and beyond: since 2013 the Concerto per Milano is the most attended free symphonic music event in Italy, in previous editions it saw the presence of over 40,000 live spectators and hundreds thousands around the world thanks to live television.

The concert will be broadcast again this year live on Rai 5 and RaiPlay thanks to Rai Cultura. An impressive effort dedicated to filming, which will engage a staff of about 70 people, with the use of ten HD cameras, two cameras on the boom and overhead rails that will make it possible to make the most of not only the music, but also the extraordinary setting of the piazza, with a spectacular view of the Milan Cathedral and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The Concert for Milan it will also be broadcast on Rai Radio 3 (live starting at 9.15 pm), and in collaboration with RaiCom it will be distributed in Europe through the Arte Channel and in over 20 countries around the world including the Middle East, North Africa, Japan and China.
