The world class Accademia di Santa Cecilia is kicking off 2015 with an explosion of musical talent.
Their January calendar includes a program by conductor Andres Orozco-Estrada (January 4th,5th, and 6th) who will be leading a procession of symphonic concerts by classical greats: Tchaikovsky, Stauss and Berlioz. The much-anticipated program will also set the stage for the debut of young and gifted Italian pianist Beatrice Rana.
On the 10th, 12th and 13th of January, you can revel in a true Italian masterpiece as acclaimed conductor Nicola Luisotti directs “The Stabat Mater” by Rossini, accompanied by an exclusive cast of singers.
Maestro Bychkov will also be inviting the public to experience the “Second Symphony” by Frank Schmitz, a great example of Austro-German symphonic tradition (January 17th, 19th, and 20th). At the same time, French violinist Renaud Capuçon will be interpreting the lyrical Mendelssohn “Violin Concerto.”
Later on in the month Santa Cecilia will pay homage to the great Finish composer Jean Sibelius on his 150th birthday (January 24th, 25th, and 27th.) During his famous “Violin Concerto” directed by Antonio Pappano, one of today’s most lauded violinistas – Georgian Lisa Baiashvili, will be performing.
If you want something a bit more edgy and modern, catch Mario Brunello and jazz pianist Uri Caine’s revisitation of Bach (January 30th) in which they approach timeless classics with innovative and original slants. For something completely unique and experimental, don’t miss the Speaking Drums Concerto (January 31st & February 1st and 2nd) featuring acrobatic Austrian percussionist Martin Grubinger.
