Verdi Re-Imagined - Fantasias from Verdi's Operas

Sep 17, 2013 925

Composers in the 19th century produced a panoply of fantasies, paraphrases and transcriptions designed to bring the world of opera into the household - but what about the concert hall? Cameristi della Scala explores Giuseppe Verdi's music in instrumental adaptations by his contemporaries, all featuring a string soloist with chamber orchestra. These potpourris were originally composed for soloist accompanied by piano, but Cameristi's own Gianluca Scandola has created elegant new orchestrations of the pieces that present Verdi re-reimagined!

The Cameristi della Scala is comprised of principal players from the Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala and the Filarmonica della Scala, and is programming these unique fantasies throughout Verdi's bicentennial year.
