The 80th Maggio Musicale Fiorentino opens with a grand symphonic concert conducted by Zubin Mehta: the programme for the evening, symbolic of the Maggio’s cultural offering, accompanies the first Italian performance of a contemporary composer – the Concerto for percussion and orchestra by Friedrich Cerha, performed by Simone Rubino – with two twentieth-century pieces: the Concerto for violin and orchestra op. 36 by Arnold Schönberg (which will be performed by Michael Barenboim), composed in 1936 and defined as “the most difficult concerto in musical history”, and the second suite from the ballet Daphnis et Chloé, a model of modern orchestration for its passion and fantasy
