Filarmonica della Scala

Filarmonica della Scala was first set up by Claudio Abbado and the musicians of La Scala Opera House in 1982. The Orchestra has collaborated with some of the greatest conductors of the time: Carlo Maria Giulini, Georges Prêtre, Lorin Maazel, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Zubin Metha, Leonard Bernstein and many others. Riccardo Muti has been the Principal Conductor from 1987 to 2005. Myung-Whun Chung is Conductor Emeritus. Riccardo Chailly was named Principal Conductor in 2015.  Filarmonica performed more than 800 concerts on tour in the last 30 years. Important milestones have included the Orchestra’s debut in the United States with Riccardo Chailly and in China with Myung-Whun Chung. From 2011 Filarmonica della Scala offers an educational project called SoundMusic! and also supports Milan’s main scientific institutions and voluntary bodies through special concerts and open rehearsals belonging to the series Prove Aperte. Furthermore Filarmonica della Scala hosts the Concerto per Milano in Piazza Duomo, an acclaimed open-air free event, since 2013. Filarmonica della Scala’s activity is supported by the Main Partner UniCredit.
