Outdoors Concert by the Orchestra della Toscana

Daniele Rustioni

Wednesday, July 19: ORCHESTRA DELLA TOSCANA. Piazza Santissima Annunziata. 9:15 pm. Regular admission: €20.

Two beloved 19th century works will be performed in a Renaissance square in downtown Florence: Maurice Ravel’s “Bolero” and Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana.”

Both compositions are extremely popular among the general public. Inspired by the 19th century Spanish dance of the same name, “Bolero” originated as ballet music, while “Carmina Burana” is based on 24 medieval poems.

The pieces will be interpreted by the Orchestra della Toscana conducted by Daniele Rustioni together with Mauro Marchetti’s City of Rome Choir and Viviana Apicella’s Vivilevoci Pescetti choir.

The choirs will be enriched with the voices of the following soloists: soprano Giuliana Gianfaldoni, tenor Antonio Giovannini, and baritone Enrico Marabelli. All in all, this extraordinary ensemble of musicians and singers will total 150 people.

Listeners have the option of paying €40, €33, or €25 for a numbered seat. Otherwise, a regular ticket may be purchased for €20.
