This year’s summer festival will also be marked by the return of Riccardo Chailly, who appeared at the 61st Ljubljana Festival with the renowned Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. The world-renowned Italian conductor was formerly Kapellmeister of the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and led the Concertgebouworkest (Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra) for 16 years. He is currently Music Director of the Teatro alla Scala, the famous and historically important opera house in Milan, founded in 1778, and Principal Conductor of the Filarmonica della Scala (La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra). He regularly conducts major symphony orchestras and participates in international festivals. On this occasion, he will lead the Filarmonica della Scala in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64.  This work, inspired by Ludwig van Beethoven and Robert Schumann, is conceived in a cyclical manner, with a recurring main theme in all movements, and characterised by an absolute musical language, as it is free of non-musical allusions, unlike many of the composer’s works. Next, Chailly will conduct the orchestral suites Daphnis et Chloé  by Maurice Ravel, who is regarded as a master of orchestration. In this work, Ravel created entirely unique and novel orchestral colours by distorting familiar sounds, with the use of damping, unusual registers, and so on.
