Regional Orchestra of Tuscany Foundation Presenta

“ Concert season 2022 – 23 ”
L'Orchestra of Tuscany also this year will brighten the holiday season with the expected Christmas concert, touching various cities in the region before arriving, as per tradition, at the Verdi Theater of Florence in the afternoon of December 24th.

He will be the artistic director of the ORT, Daniele Rustioni, to get on the podium of 'his' orchestra, exceptionally failing to leave it always and only to other colleagues.

Awarded a few days ago as "Best Conductor of the Year” to the very prestigious Opera Awards, Daniele Rustioni back on stage with his wife Francesca Dego, one of the most acclaimed violinists on the international concert scene, present in the major symphonic and chamber seasons of Europe, the United States and Asia.

The Rustioni-Dego couple will be busy with the Concert no. 2 op. 63 of Sergej Prokofiev, a 1935 piece written by the composer on the eve of his return to Russia, from which he had emigrated following the October Revolution. Instead, yours dates back to the eve of the Revolution classical symphony, one of the best known and most performed pieces, a tribute to Haydn and Mozart. The third composition in the programme, la Symphony n.1 of Beethoven, who in the round year 1800 greets the eighteenth century to open, combatively, the new century.
