The story of the activity of Riccardo Muti as musical director of Teatro alla Scala in Milan.
[Riccardo Muti / Ten years at Teatro alla Scala] The story of the activity of Riccardo Muti as musical director of Teatro alla Scala in Milan. An extraordinarily intense activity, not limited to the performance of opera and the concert repertoire in Milan, but also in other prestigious institutions in Vienna, Berlin, Salzburg.
The tale of the last ten years of Muti in Milan is not the whole story of his recent artistic experiences, nor is it the story of the theater over the last decade. The volume investigates the work of the maestro to improve the quality of the orchestra at La Scala and to transform it from a great operatic orchestra to a great symphony orchestra as well; the same logic has applied to the chorus.
The book also analyzes the four major cycles Muti has conducted over the years: Gluck, Mozart, Verdi and Wagner.
With vivid photographs and a complete discography.
