The Accademia di Musica has always tried to nurture the talent of its students not only by offering excellent teaching with didactic programmes centred around the student, but also by creating a warm, friendly environment that is stimulating and engaging, where the student is followed with great attention and consideration. The artistic ability, the talent and the enthusiasm of the Accademia’s students have found their natural expression in the formation of this orchestra.
The young musicians taking part in the orchestra project are united in their intentions: to strive for excellence in preparing the programmes, to create a group of the highest quality, to develop the talent of each individual member in order to form an ensemble of great artistic value. The orchestral work is complementary to the entire course of study, which, naturally, involves the analysis and perfecting of the soloist’s repertoire. What the orchestra provides is the exchange and the educational experience of playing as part of a group.
Most members of the Orchestra (students and ex-students) are already members of important established orchestras, chamber music ensembles and orchestra ensembles (Orchestra of La Scala of Milan, Orchestra of Padova and Veneto, RAI Orchestra, to mention only a few) and they certainly find good opportunities for work, for experience, for artistic development in their contact with diverse and prestigious orchestras. But the Accademia Orchestra possesses an added value: members have a real sense of belonging and therefore take part in the work with enthusiasm, deeper involvement and great dedication.
The Orchestra has performed concerts that have been acclaimed by audiences and critics, and can boast collaboration with distinguished guest soloists, like Riccardo Donati, Giampaolo Pretto, Simone Rubino and Uto Ughi.
