We are so excited to announce our next release: the debut song disc from Julien Van Mellaerts 📀🎉🥂
Julien honours his heritage with a selection of New Zealand, British, and French song, recorded with pianist James Baillieu:
"I wanted to share where I feel connected to and explore the idea of home and identity through song. Having grown up knowing I was from many places, I feel a strong connection to the protagonist in Vaughan Williams / R. L. Stevenson’s Songs of Travel. I am lucky to call so many beautiful places home, and ultimately, that’s how we settled on the title, Songs of Travel and Home.” — Julien Van Mellaerts

Our opera company is preparing our 17th world premiere Italian opera, with music of Italian Maestro Mauro Fabbri & other artists from 45 countries to honor Dante! Muti says: ′′ I am in love with Divine Comedy because it says that music is not understanding but kidnapping. And in fact people who go to the theater, to enjoy music, are sometimes terrified of the famous ′′ competent ". But I'm not competent either: when I take a score I'm a musician... I understand the shape, architecture, counterpoint , the dynamics of notes, objective elements, but what is behind the notes is, as Mozart said, infinity."-Riccardo Muti
