RAVENNA FESTIVAL – Opening Concert of the Young Orchestra Luigi Cherubini, directed by the Maestro Riccardo Muti

Sunday, June 21, 2020 – 9:30 pm (Italy’s time)
Live-Streaming concert available on

It was July 1990 when, on the stage set up at the Rocca Brancaleone, Riccardo Muti raised his wand to inaugurate the first edition of the Ravenna Festival, exactly thirty years ago and in that same place which hosts today the “rebirth” of live music in Italy, after the long months of the lockdown. Italy restarts from this place, the fifteenth-century Venetian fortress nestled in the heart of the city, with Maestro Muti and “his” young Orchestra Cherubini, composed of 62 under-30 musicians from all over Italy, for a program almost entirely dedicated to Mozart. At the opening of the concert, the Orchestra will play Alexandr Nikolaevič Skrjabin’s Rêverie, followed by the motet Exsultate, jubilate KV 165 and the Et incarnatus est from the Mass in C minor KV 427, both entrusted to the voice of Rosa Feola. To complete the program, the Orchestra will perform the majestic Symphony n. 41 in C major KV 551, composed by Mozart during the difficult summer of 1788. From one of the darkest periods of his life, a symphony was born, whose luminosity once again elevates Mozart’s genius above everyday adversity.
