Abbado indisposed, Renzetti to conduct the Messa di Gloria

30 July 2015

Maestro Roberto Abbado has suffered a serious accident to his ankle, with severing of the Achilles tendon, for which reason he has had to undergo an immediate surgical operation. This has forced him to give up all his immediate engagements, among which would have been conducting the Filarmonica G. Rossini in the Messa di Gloria announced for the 15th and 18th of August.

The concert will therefore be conducted by Maestro Donato Renzetti, the principal conductor of this orchestra, whom the Festival would like to thank for so cordially making himself available, while we wish Maestro Abbado a speedy recovery.
