The World's Greatest Music
The great Italian conductor Claudio Abbado blazed a trail around the world – from La Scala Milan to the London Symphony Orchestra, from Chicago to Vienna and Berlin. He was known for his Germanic orchestral repertoire as well as his interest in Rossini and Verdi.
Abbado made his début at La Scala, Milan in 1960 going on to serve as its music director from 1968 to 1986. He conducted not only the traditional Italian repertoire but also presented a contemporary opera each year, as well as a concert series devoted to the works of Berg and Mussorgsky.
