DEBUT WITH THE RAI ORCHESTRA OF TURIN

wth No Comments

Eagerly-awaited debut, in 2014, for Gioele Muglialdo on the podium of one of the most prestigious Italian orchestras, the RAI National Symphony Orchestra of Turin. For the city of the “Mole Antonelliana” it will be a real event: the movie Metropolis, the 1927 masterpiece by Fritz Lang, will be shown in the restored, unabridged, version with the original soundtrack performed live.

This famous soundtrack, as everybody knows, is a milestone in film music, a monumental score with a Strauss imprint signed by Gottfried Huppert, who worked, frame by frame, in perfect symbiosis with Lang. It will be the first performance in Turin of this “rediscovered” work of art after its triumphant tour of Europe and Italy, where it was invariably hugely successful with the public, beginning with the Berlin Film Festival of 2010.

This famous soundtrack, as everybody knows, is a milestone in film music, a monumental score with a Strauss imprint signed by Gottfried Huppert, who worked, frame by frame, in perfect symbiosis with Lang. It will be the first performance in Turin of this “rediscovered” work of art after its triumphant tour of Europe and Italy, where it was invariably hugely successful with the public, beginning with the Berlin Film Festival of 2010.

The “movie-concert” Metropolis conducted by Muglialdo (which will take place at the “Arturo Toscanini” Hall on 6 June 2014) will be part of a series of events dedicated to the great art of silent movies, in collaboration with the National Museum of Cinema, chaired by Ugo Nespolo and directed by Alberto Barbera. The Turin performance is an important step in the music career of Gioele Muglaldo who, today, in Italy – indeed in Europe – is one of the few specialists in this repertoire, which requires of the performer the specific technique of synchronizing music and image.
