This month Alessandro Crudele will be back in Italy: On Friday 13th September he makes his return to the Festival MITO SettembreMusica with the Orchestra UniMi, in a programme inspired by the continent of Africa, perfectly matching the Festival’s theme for this year: “Geographies”.
Among two pieces by Camille Saint-Saëns – Suite Algerienne op. 60 and Africa, fantasie for piano and orchestra op. 89 with rising star Italian pianist Alessandro Taverna, the programme features two Italian premieres: excerpts from African Suite by Fela Sowande and Three Nigerian Dances by Samuel Akpabot.
Since making their extremely successful concert in 2015, the Orchestra UniMi and Alessandro Crudele have received invitations to perform at this Festival every season.
