Alessandro Crudele returns to the RTS Symphony Orchestra in Belgrade this month, for a concert on 7th November 2019, commencing his second season with this orchestra as their Principal Guest Conductor. The programme features Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 2 in D major K 314, with the young rising Serbian flutist Anja Malkov and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2, along with the contemporary piece, Ka oblacima by Milana Milošević.
Crudele’s last concert in Belgrade in March 2019 was praised by the critics:
Sometimes some concerts win us over from the first beat. Such a case occurred at the last concert of the Radio Television Symphony Orchestra of Serbia, conducted by Italian conductor Alessandro Crudele. […] The orchestra clearly responded well to the Italian conductor, who, especially from Bottesini and Dvorak’s units, managed to create striking and eminently edgy ensembles. It was a successful concert with two prominent soloists, a well-rehearsed orchestra and an outstanding young and talented conductor. (Srđan Teparić)
Later this month, on 26th November, Alessandro Crudele will join the Orchestra UniMi in Milan for their 20th season opening.
The programme of the evening, focused on rhythm, features the Overture from Rossini’s Barbiere di Siviglia and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1, while the traditional piece by a living composer will be Emmanuel Séjourné’s Concerto for marimba and strings, with the young and talented Chinese percussionist Shengnan Hu.
In celebration of its 20th season, the Orchestra UniMi – founded by Alessandro himself – will perform special concerts and events throughout the next year, and a DVD recording will be produced.
