13 Jan. Free live concert in Milan’s Duomo.
Long-standing tradition and musicians of the future will offer a free concert in Milan’s iconic cathedral on Friday 13 January.
The performers are I Solisti Veneti, the Padua-based chamber orchestra which since its foundation in 1959 has established its reputation on the international scene for masterful performances of baroque music. They will be joined by the Futurorchestra, an ensemble of junior musicians from across the Lombardy region, and the “Polli(ci)ni”, players aged between 7 and 15 from the Pollini Conservatory of Padua.
The programme will include three baroque concerts by Antonio Vivaldi and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in C minor, K550.
The event replaces the traditional Christmas concert in the Duomo, originally scheduled for 20 December but postponed as a sign of respect after a visitor fell to his death from the cathedral roof.
Entry is free as long as seats are available. Admission will open at 18.45; the concert begins at 19.30.
