The prestigious Münchener Bach-Chor accompanied by the Young Musicians European Orchestra conducted by Paolo Olmi, will close ERF#StignaniMusica 2018/19 on Tuesday 16 April with Mozart’s Requiem.
The most famous composition by Mozart is also the last one: the Requiem was unfinished by the Austrian genius, who died when he still had to write the last pieces. However, Mozart left notes and a student capable of completing this last requiem – which was also the requiem performed at the funeral of Mozart himself, who had the opportunity to sing for his own death.
The Münchener Bach-Chor, an institution of international classical music, will give life to the powerful choric system. Founded in 1954 by Karl Richter, the choir obtained, especially for its interpretations of Bach’s music, the worldwide attention and applause for international tours – from Paris to Moscow, from Tokyo and New York – and for its recordings world famous.
To interpret the musical part will be the Young Musicians European Orchestra, active for years on the international scene, a formation composed of young European musicians, continuously refounded by its condutor Paolo Olmi and by the “senior” members – those who performed the first concerts, still less than 35 years old.
The conductor Paolo Olmi, protagonist of operas and concerts all over the world in famous theatres and orchestras, has conducted almost all the Verdi pieces as well as all the great operas and the great pieces of the history of music, even contemporary.
The soloists will be: the soprano Arianna Vendittelli who has already performed in the most important concert venues in the world; Victoria Yarovaya, a young Russian mezzo-soprano, who has won of numerous competitions and collaborated with the greatest conductors; the tenor Manuel Amati, who has been studying opera singing since he was thirteen and has already performed in the most important roles of the Italian Opera; and Gabriele Sagona, bass, who studied with the best Masters and performed in the best European theatres.
