  7. Muti and Cherubini to open Campania...

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 18 – Tomorrow night, March 19th 2021,
there will be staged at the Teatro Mercadante of Naples a
concert of the Orchestra Giovanile Luigi Cherubini conducted by
Riccardo Muti who will inaugurate the 14th edition of the
Campania Teatro Festival, directed by Ruggero Cappuccio.
    The concert will be also available in free streaming from the
26th of March onwards for a whole month on the following
websites:,, e
    The Orchestra will play I Due Figaro, the Spanish symphony
composed by Saverio Mercadante, and the symphony no.9 in D Major
D 944 by Franz Schubert, also known as The Great (La Grande).
    Both concert pieces share a lot in common.
    The manuscript of I Due Figaro, a continuation of Mozart’s The
Wedding and Rossini’s Barber of Seville, was discovered in 2009
by Turinese Paolo Cascio while he was researching in Madrid’s
library. This funny melodrama was composed in 1826 to a libretto
by Felice Romani, but it was censored and therefore it was
staged only in 1835. Even La Grande composed by Schubert between
1825 and 1826 was presented for the first time to the audience
many years later. It was indeed Robert Schumann who found it
again among the documents belonging to Schubert and immediately
presented it to Felix Mendelssohn. (ANSA).
