Among symphonic music written by genius Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, Verdi and Wagner this season we focused on some most valuable operatic works. Conductors were Živa Ploj Peršuh from Slovenia and Carlo Rizzari from Italy.

Since 2006, Carlo Rizzari has been music assistant to Antonio Pappano at the Orchestra of the National Academy of Saint Cecilia in Rome. At the invitation of Claudio Abbado, he conducted a series of concerts by the Orchestra Mozart in Bologna and Lucerne. He regularly conducts the Orchestra of the National Academy of Saint Cecilia in Rome at family concerts. Moreover, he as conductor collaborates with famous soloists during the regular concert season.
