Alessandro Crudele will debut at the end of this month with the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra in Bucharest, one of the most prestigious orchestras in Eastern Europe. The two concerts, held in the Romanian Athenaeum on 30th May and 1st June, will be celebrating the Italian “Festa della Repubblica”. The George Enescu Philharmonic invited Crudele to conduct this special concert which represents the synergy between the two countries, Romania and Italy.
The programme features music by great Italian composers: the overture from La Forza del Destino and the sacred piece Te Deum, both by Verdi, and the Violin Concerto No. 1 by Paganini, with the young virtuoso Roman Kim.
Despite the last piece of the programme being by Tchaikovsky, it still carries a very Italian theme: Francesca da Rimini, a symphonic poem which sets to music the well-known tragedy narrated by Dante Alighieri in his Divine Comedy.
