MITO 2019

Everything is set for the 13th edition of the international music festival MITO SettembreMusica, running from 3 to 19 September.


The opening evening of MITO SettembreMusica is just around the corner, the classical music festival that for years has strengthened the prolific bond between Milan and Turin, supported by Intesa Sanpaolo since its very first iteration. 

The bank is playing an active role in the festival with two evenings as Presenting Partner:

  • In Milan for the “Mondi” concert on Wednesday 3 September at the Teatro alla Scala theatre from 9.00 pm, with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Zubin Mehta and with Martha Argerich on piano, playing pieces by Beethoven and Berlioz, the eminent figures of two different visions of music, two real worlds in contrast, one opposite the other on the violin.  

  • In Turin for the “Nuove Geografie” concert on Sunday 15 September at the Teatro Regio theatre from 9.00 pm with James MacMillan performing his piece Larghetto for Orchestra for the first time in Italy, accompanied by the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Yuri Temirkanov. The performance pays homage to Gustav Mahler’s Symphony no.1 in D major, “Titan”, that allowed this famous Austrian composer to open the door to a new world for classical music.

Furthermore, the concert on Friday 6 September at 9.00 pm in the Auditorium of the Turin skyscraper, “Altre Russie”, with the duo Fulvio Luciani on violin and Massimiliano Motterle on piano, sold out a few weeks after the tickets became available.
