The brilliant young conductor Daniele Rustioni brings a sense of theatre to everything he touches – and tonight he takes a very personal journey through the music of his native Italy. Respighi’s Fountains of Rome fill the air with glittering spray; Mendelssohn’s Italian symphony dances a wild tarantella under the midday sun. And 74 years after it was written, enjoy the UK premiere of Wolf-Ferrari’s gorgeous Violin Concerto: imagine a Puccini opera where a violin is the diva!
CBSO+ 6.15pm: CBSO Chief Executive Stephen Maddock joins Daniele Rustioni and Francesa Dego in conversation to explore the rich history of Wolf-Ferrari's violin concerto.
