For me, due to the deep bond I have with the Teatro alla Scala, the concert I held there on 8th July was particularly significant. Accompanied by pianist Giulio Zappa, I performed with soprano Federica Lombardi and violinist Patricia Kopatchinkskaja in the second concert of “Quattro concerti per ricominciare”. I am proud to have participated in such a special evening for La Scala and Milan, with a programme of Verdi arias not yet sung at La Scala (as well as an intruder I love very much, Loris’ aria in Fedora) and the duet “Già nella notte densa” from Otello.
The concert was broadcast live on Teatro alla Scala and Corriere della Sera websites and social networks.
I find that, after waiting so long for live music, the international (and immense) audience of streaming is a wonderful gift to both us and the audience.
