Guest appearances and concerts given by the artists of Milan's famous operatic temple Teatro alla Scala, Cameristi della Scala, are mostly described as unforgettable! That was also true for their appearance at Carnegie Hall in October 2013, when the programme included rarely performed, unpublished and almost forgotten fantasies on Verdi's operas composed by Verdi's contemporaries, friends and collaborators. “I did a lot of research” Gianluca Scandola, violinist and artistic director of the ensemble said on that occasion, “and I found around 50 unknown pieces. After a long transcription and revision process, we came up with the compositions that we performed at our first appearance at Carnegie Hall.” The concert received accolades from the audience and critics. The Zagreb audience will also have an opportunity to experience such a performance and hear “covers” of themes from Giovanni Avolio’s Falstaff for Violin and Orchestra, Camillo Sivori’s Il Trovatore for Violin and Orchestra, Luigi Mancinelli’s Aida for Cello and Orchestra, Antonio Bazzini's La Traviata for Violin and Orchestra and others. Numerous tours, guest appearances in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Poland, China, Russia, Argentina, Israel, the USA, numerous awards, especially the Isimbardi Award for the promotion of art and international activities presented by the Milan Province, collaboration with numerous artists and acclaimed conductors, such as Riccardo Muti and Daniel Barenboim, are proof enough and an invitation to the citizens of Zagreb to make sure they won’t miss this unique music experience – “an evening to remember”.
