Riccardo Muti will be joined by over 60 members of the Luigi Cherubini Youth Orchestra and the soloist, soprano Rosa Feola. It is a date of great symbolic value. In addition to coinciding with the day of the “Festa della Musica“, it will be the first major concert in Italy that takes place in the presence of the audience, since the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was July 1990, when Riccardo Muti, on the stage set up at the Rocca Brancaleone, raised his wand to inaugurate the first edition of the Ravenna festival, exactly thirty years ago and in the same place that today hosts the “rebirth” of live music in Italy, after the long months of the lockdown. Italy restarts from here, from the fifteenth-century Venetian fortress nestled in the heart of the city, with Maestro Muti and “his” young Cherubini Orchestra, composed of 62 musicians under 30 from all over Italy, in an almost entirely Mozartian program. The concert will open with 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. The majestic Symphony n. 41 in C major KV 551, composed by Mozart during the difficult summer of 1788 will complete the program. From one of the darkest periods of Mozart’s life, was born a symphony whose luminosity once again puts Mozart’s genius above everyday adversity.
