Uto Ughi
January 13, 2020

Music, opera and performance

The live and shows that you cannot miss in Florence, until April 2020

JANUARY

On the 26 January, the great violinist Uto Ughi takes to the stage at Teatro Verdi with a 1701 Stradivari known as “Kreutzer”, named after the violinist who owned it and to whom Beethoven dedicated his famous sonata, the theme of this concert.

FEBRUARY

On 9 February, the Amici della Musica and Teatro della Pergola host an exceptional piano duo, Bruno Canino and Antonio Ballista, to celebrate 250 years since the birth of Beethoven. Concert solist Jordi Savall also comes to Teatro della Pergola on 16 February, bringing his 7-string viol. 

MARCH

On 6 March, Rocco Papaleo comes to Teatro Puccini with his new show Coast to Coast, a successful experiment of theatre and song with a quartet composed of Arturo Valiante (piano), Guerino Rondolone (double bass), Dario Savarese (percussion) and Giorgio Tebaldi (trombone). On 20 March, at the Fondazione Franco Zeffirelli, a concert from the harpist Stefania Scapin with a solo programme of music from Scarlatti to Britten. On the same evening, an unmissable concert at the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo (entrance free, booking required) with star soprano Jessica Pratt singing the Arie di bravura, accompanied on the piano by Giovanni Fabbrini. 

APRIL

Teatro della Pergola welcomes the great violinist Victoria Mullova on 5 April for a concert with Micha Mullov-Abbado on the cello. The Festival del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino opens on 23 April with Luigi Cherubini’s Lo sposo di tre o il marito di nessuna. Ti racconto Don Giovanni is on at Teatro Verdi on 28 and 29 April, as part of ORT’s (Orchestra della Toscana) concerts. This promises to be a true spectacle of theatre and classical music, excitement and entertainment: actor Alessandro Ricco transforms himself into characters from Mozart’s operas, dressing and doing his make-up while onstage, changing voice, body and personality.
