The seventh edition of MITO SettembreMusica is about to begin: mark your calendars for Wednesday, September 4 (at the Teatro della Scala in Milan) and Thursday, September 5 (at the Regio in Turin).
Get ready for 18 days of music, with 209 separate events and more than 2,900 individual artists participating in the 99 included venues in the two cities.
And for the first time, this year will see the Festival inaugurate the programme with religious music. Opening the concert are Symphony N. 80 in D Minor by Franz Joseph Haydn, and Motet op. 74 n.1 “Warum ist das Licht gegeben dem Mühseligen?” by Johannes Brahms. Following will be Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor KV 427, performed by the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin ensemble and by the Cappella Amsterdam choir, as directed by Daniel Reuss.
So many are the music sessions worth hearing at this festival known for celebrating all musical genres. Ninety-five performances alone are free, and 114 boast very affordable ticket costs. Large part of the 183 scheduled concerts treat Classical music, while the rest touch on Contemporary, Folk, World, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Singer-Songwriter, Crossover, Electronic, DJ sets, musicals for children, dance expos, music for film, as well as roundtables, conferences, encounters and exhibits.
