Ravello Foundation Presents

“Easter concert”
For those lucky enough to spend the Easter holidays in the splendor of the Amalfi Coast, an appointment not to be missed is scheduled for April 10, 2023 (11.30 am), Easter Monday, at the Cathedral of Ravello.

L'Orchestra and Chorus of the Giuseppe Verdi Theater in Salerno, directed by George Petrou, present a program entirely based on the music of Antonio Vivaldi: the concert opens on the notes of Symphony At the Holy Sepulcher for strings and continuo, to continue with two of the best-known pieces by the Venetian composer, the sacred cantata Magnificat RV 611 and the spectacular Glory RV 589, solo voices the contralto Frances Ascioti and the soprano Daniela Cappiello.

Organized by the Ravello Foundation, the Easter appointment that opens the season of the Città della Musica sees one of the most sensitive interpreters of Baroque music on the podium, George Petrou.

The Greek master, nominated for a Grammy and winner of the Echo Klassik, will inaugurate the Italian engagements of the year in Ravello which will see him star at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro and at the Teatro alla Scala.

George Petrou has a remarkable international career to his credit: since last season 2021/22 he is the new artistic director of the prestigious international festival Handel Festspiele of Göttingen (Germany), holds the same role in the orchestra Athens harmony, with whom he tours and records extensively, performing on both period and modern instruments, and is musical director of theGreek Radio National Symphony Orchestra. Petrou also combines the activity of conductor with theater direction for which he has developed a keen interest, signing several successful productions.

Solo voices of the Easter concert in Ravello will be Francesca Ascioti, contralto, and Daniela Cappiello, soprano.

Frances Ascioti, graduated from the Brescia Conservatory and the Accademia del Teatro alla Scala, she made her debut as Mrs Quickly alongside Renato Bruson in Falstaff, and her career took off after singing the same role at the Ravenna Festival under the guidance of Riccardo Muti.

Daniela Cappiello, trained at the Martucci Conservatory of Salerno and then specialized in opera singing at the G. Frescobaldi Conservatory of Ferrara, is one of the most popular voices from Campania. He has won numerous international opera competitions, establishing himself in the world of opera.
