UniCredit presents the international tour of Filarmonica della Scala 2019
- Nine concerts in eight European cities
In 2019, Filarmonica della Scala will perform nine international concerts from January to June on a tour led
by Riccardo Chailly.
In recent years, Filarmonica della Scala has greatly increased its international appearances to celebrate the
orchestra’s rich history with performances at renowned concert halls around the world. In 2018, Filarmonica
della Scala performed 17 concerts in nine countries attracting a total audience of approximately 30 000
people for the whole tour.
UniCredit has been supporting Filarmonica della Scala as a partner since 2000 and in 2003 became its main
partner. Fabrizio Saccomanni, Chairman of UniCredit and President of Filarmonica della Scala, said: “The
annual international tours of Filarmonica have played an important role in building worldwide recognition for
the orchestra in an effort to make exceptional classical music available to a broader and more diverse
audience. UniCredit strongly believes that supporting culture and talent has a positive impact on the
communities in which we operate and the aim of our partnership with Filarmonica is to provide remarkable
experiences to our communities as a way to foster social cohesiveness and promote a sense of belonging.”
The orchestra will start its tour on the 23rd of January with two concerts in Madrid followed by a
performance in Paris on the 25th of January with violinist Maxim Vengerov. The orchestra will then perform
