Tickets: €


”If anyone reckons that all that I am attempting to express in my music is a little nostalgia and lots of humour and optimism, well that is exactly how I would like to be remembered.” Nino Rota, the king of nostalgic melodies, composed his Piano Concerto in E minor alongside music for the film La dolce vita. Richard Strauss travelled regularly to Italy to seek inspiration from the Mediterranean atmosphere. His tone poem Aus Italien was one of the fruits of his first Italian adventure at the age of 22.
