The sumptuous splendours and vivid colours of Italian music bring the two-concert residency from the Orchestra of Milan’s famed La Scala opera house to a dazzling close, under vibrant Music Director Riccardo Chailly.

Verdi displays all the spectacle of the opera house in his thrillingly dramatic Stabat mater and Te Deum, combining touching serenity and stormy torment in rich musical picture-painting, sung by the masterly Edinburgh Festival Chorus.

Chailly and his Orchestra close with more astonishing picture-painting – the iridescent hues and blazing celebration of Respighi’s roof-raising musical tributes to the Eternal City.
