The fortieth season of the La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra has started. “If the Wiener did it, why shouldn’t you do it too?” With these words Claudio Abbado, at dinner with the musicians, ignited the idea of the Philharmonic, an orchestra that would give its musicians, employees of the Theater, their own autonomy and artistic and organizational responsibility. In Turin, a new stage of the concerts of the Dimore del Quartetto, which stands out and finds strength in its ability to network with local, national and international actors, generating shared value.
