Overtures, Preludes & Intermezzi / Chailly
After almost 40 years on DECCA and over 3 million album sales Riccardo Chailly starts a new chapter in January 2017 as Music Director of Teatro alla Scala, Milan, the worlds most iconic opera house. A Triumphant Homecoming: Milanese by birth, Chailly made his conducting debut at La Scala in 1978, as assistant to Claudio Abbado. Chaillys father Luciano had also served as Artistic Director at La Scala, completing a family dynasty. The Filarmonica Della Scala CD is a sonically spectacular recording celebrating three centuries of music first performed at the legendary opera house: overtures, preludes and intermezzi from Verdi, Rossini, Puccini and many others. All new to Chaillys discography.
