Famous Italian conductor Eddie de Nadai, on the other hand, will be working with the Astana Opera Symphony Orchestra for the second time.
“The Astana Opera Symphony Orchestra is excellent. Working with them again will be a great pleasure. I appreciate the musicians’ flexibility, beautiful sound, especially in the operatic repertoire, which is not easy to perform. I have known Stefano Andreatta for several years, but have not yet worked with him on the same stage. He is a musician of the highest level, winner of the international piano competition FVG 2016, which is among the most prestigious in Italy. Conducting Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be a pleasure. This opus requires great mastery from the soloist,” shares Eddie de Nadai. “My favorite composers are J. Brahms and G. Verdi. The concert program features the second greatest Italian composer of all time, a true flagman of Italian music along with G. Rossini. I am sure that the Kazakhstani audience will enjoy this concert.”
