The program is enriched with new appointments in the months of May and June with the Orchestra and Chorus of the National Academy of Santa Cecilia: six concerts are scheduled in the Sala Santa Cecilia of the Auditorium Parco della Musica.
It begins with the Piano Concert no. 1 composed by Brahms at a young age, with a romantic character, played by the internationally renowned pianist Beatrice Rana; this concert is characterized by the presence of the young English conductor Alpesh Chauhan, Music Director of the Birmingham Opera Company who, for the occasion, makes his debut on the podium of the Santa Cecilia Orchestra.
