Officially founded in 1585 by Pope Sixtus V, the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia is one of the oldest musical institutions in the world. Based in Rome, the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia was established in 1908, becoming the first Italian orchestra to devote itself to the symphonic repertoire. The Orchestra is led by Sir Antonio Pappano, one of today’s most sought-after conductors, acclaimed for his charismatic leadership and artistry in symphonic and operatic repertoires. Joining the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia is rising star pianist Beatrice Rana.

This performance is also part of the Fernando Laires Piano Series.
