Messa di Gloria / Speranza Scappucci
Messa di Gloria
After Leonardo García Alarcón and Christian Zacharias, Speranza Scappucci from Rome is the orchestra’s third guest conductor. For the occasion, she has selected a rarely performed work by her compatriot Gioachino Rossini: the Messa di gloria. The lost score, rediscovered in 1970, appeals for its sensuality, choirs and operatic language.
