On July 28th we will participate for the first time in the Estate Sforzesca

In its twentieth year, the Orchestra UniMi, conducted by Alessandro Crudele, participates for the first time in the Estate Sforzesca. The “classic” programme proposes the Symphony n. 3 by SCHUBERT, in which the Austrian composer’s youthful exuberance and communicative immediacy set off towards the drama of the more mature period. In the second part, it celebrates the 250th anniversary of the birth of BEETHOVEN, with the Symphony no. 1 in C major, with its unceasing dialogue of materials and the bursting start of a new compositional era.

The concert will be held on July 28th, 2020 at 9 pm at the Sforza Castle in Milan. Tickets on sale >>> HERE.
