Alba, Chiesa di San Domenico
Diana Bucur soprano
Romanian Philharmonic State Orchestra
Conductor Cristian Florea
Proudly included in the cultural life of Alba and Unesco territory of Langhe, Monferrato and Roero, the New Year's Day Concert is back with its ninth edition in the picturesque setting of the Church of San Domenico. Under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Nova and Jeff Silberschlag, this exciting musical event, with a public of 400 people and more, became one of the most recognized events of New Year’s Day in Piedmont.
Musics by great composers of the past such as Brahms, Dvořák and Šostakovič, some famous arias by Puccini and pieces by the Americans George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein will create a musical anthology that some very traditional Strauss Waltzes will complete. Cristian Florea will conduct the Romanian State Philharmonic Orchestra (over 50 musicians) with the participation of the celebrated soprano Diana Bucur.
The New Year's Day Concert is organized in collaboration with: City of Alba, Fondazione Live Piemonte dal Vivo, Regione Piemonte, Ministero per i beni e le attività culturali, Famija Albèisa, Parco Culturale Langhe Monferrato Roero, Associazione per il Patrimonio dei Paesaggi Vitivinicoli di Langhe, Roero e Monferrato, Alba Campus.
