Milan boasts a solid musical tradition whose roots go back to the beginning of the 19th century, when Italian opera experienced maximum splendor and good fortune. All the most famous composers have trod the boards of LA SCALA THEATRE stage,, and no-one has managed to escape judgment by the demanding Milanese audience. ROSSINI, DONIZETTI, BELLINI, VERDI and PUCCINI are the names of only the most important Italian composers who came to Milan to present the premičre of their operas. The fortune of these composers and the Milanese theatre is also to be sought in the foundation of CASA RICORDI (1808), which acquired ownership of the complete musical archives of La Scala, thus assuming a role of prime importance in the world of theatrical impresarios, and indissolubly tying its name to the great season of Italian opera.
  Milan Apartments: La Scala Theatre

Nowadays La Scala is the most famous theatre in the world for its season of opera, concerts and ballet, which has always boasted the names of the most prestigious conductors. Every year its calendar presents the main masterpieces of Italian and international tradition giving the ever demanding audience performances by the most famous orchestras, besides impeccable acoustics.

When one speaks of classical music in Italy, there's a good chance one will speak of Casa Ricordi as well.
With almost two hundred years of history behind it, Casa Ricordi is the oldest Italian music publishing firm still in business. It is the leader in the Italian market and unquestionably the world's most important publisher of opera. As well as promoting and exploiting its existing legacy - an immense catalogue built up over two centuries - Casa Ricordi continues to develop a catalogue of the "classical" music by today's leading contemporary Italian composers. Particular attention is also devoted to forms of music theatre other than the canonical forms of "serious" music: the musical, incidental music and mixed genres.
The Ricordi Historical Archive is one of the most important private music collections in the world. The archive was built up as Casa Ricordi steadily established its reputation (also preserved are the documents recording the firm's foundation in 1808). Its content, assembled over a period of almost two centuries, stands as a record of the history of Italian music and opera as it is celebrated throughout the world. The archive's chief "treasures" are the autograph scores of the most famous musicians of the 19th and 20th centuries, the accumulated correspondence between composers and publisher (some 15,000 letters) and a rich collection of photographs. Also included is an abundant collection of operatic materials, numbering over 10,000 items, including original scenery- and costume-sketches. Among the giants of the past represented in this rich musical legacy are Paganini, Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini, Listz, Verdi, Puccini, to Nono and Donatoni.
For Information visit

The Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan,, founded in 1807, has also contributed to the growth and diffusion of the musical culture of Milan. A great number of musicians and composers have studied in its school, which is certainly one of the most prestigious. Every year it offers a rich season of appointments ranging from symphonic music to chamber music. In addition to its didactic function, since 1816 it has held the role of musical archives for Lombardy. Thus, its library holds the widest collection in Italy of printed music published in Italy from 1808 to present day.

The Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi has become one of Italy's most important symphonic orchestras. Another special feature of the Orchestra is the formation in 1998 of the choir, 'Coro Sinfonico di Milano Giuseppe Verdi'. The choir currently consists of 105 vocalists accomplished of handling the vast lyric-symphonic repertoire from baroque to the Twentieth Century.
The Orchestra was founded in 1993 by Vladimir Delman and has been conducted among others by Georges Prźtre, Riccardo Muti, Valery Gergiev, Christopher Hogwood, Rudolf Barshai, Helmut Rilling, Peter Maag, Kazushi Ono, Daniele Gatti, and has played with soloists such as Martha Argerich, Mstislav Rostropovic, Vadim Repin, Lynn Harrel, Viktoria Mullova, Sarah Chang, Han-Na Chang, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Salvatore Accardo, Mario Brunello, Alexander Torazde.

The Auditorium of Milano, the new "home" of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi, was created by restoring the old Cinema Teatro Massimo and will be indissolubly linked to the future activity of the Orchestra.
A New Multipurpose Hall On The Navigli. The city of Milan has been enhanced by a multipurpose hall conceived for music, in the Ticinese quarter, one of its most picturesque areas, just a few minutes away from Piazza Duomo.
The structure dates back to 1939 and had lain idle for many years. It was designed by the architect Alessandro Rimini who designed the Colosseo cinema in 1927, the Impero in 1929 and the Astra in 1929.
The main hall now seats an audience of 1400. The extremely comfortable chairs are distributed in the "spoon-shaped" stalls and the tiered gallery which extends above and embraces the hall with its curvilinear balustrade. The ceiling, which has been enhanced by the project, is composed of the original network of bare reinforced concrete beams arranged radius fashion towards the 20-metre wide acoustic shell-shaped proscenium. A sophisticated air-conditioning system ensures that the hall is kept at a perfect temperature in all seasons.
The hall has been designed bearing in mind the different purposes for which it will be used: symphony concerts, choral and chamber music, jazz and light music, recordings with digital sound techniques, as well as for broadcasting performances via satellite TV and projecting musical films.
