Meet the brilliant Italian conductor Daniele Rustioni. At 34, he has already made starry debuts at opera houses and orchestras in the USA and Europe to huge acclaim. He brings great tunes, life and good humour.
Rossini’s overture is pure entertainment. Respighi’s suite is a chocolate box of miniature masterpieces inspired by bestselling Renaissance songs and dances. Mendelssohn’s First Symphony was encored so much at its London premiere that the evening went on and on.
