Mozart loved and feared Milan

Là ci darem la mano

One of the things that the whole world most admires us is the history of our Opera, its arias, the technique of Belcanto and the solemnity of our scenography.

The opera is the pride of Milan but unfortunately it is much, too much, neglected by the authorities, the media, the press and the people from Milano, themselves, of all ages.

This is a very dangerous thing because it mainly gives way to more “modern” phenomena such as rap, hip-hop, trap, witch house, urban and similar “non-music”.

In addition, today there is a tendency to make music videos increasingly full of masonic-satanic symbolisms that aim to pollute the minds of young people, tending to decrease their positive feelings of compassion, solidarity and altruism.

The “Teatro alla Scala” is the maximum point of reference for this musical and artistic expression. Since August 3, 1778, the day of its inauguration, it has never stopped offering its sweet notes to the world.

For a composer, coming to Milan to have his works heard was like a university exam.

Even the great Mozart came to Milan to perform his works in order to be approved from the public of Milan. In fact, between 1769 and 1773 Mozart came to Milan several times.

At 14 he played the organ in the Church of San Marco. He did the opening concert of the music room at Palazzo Clerici. In the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine he performed some of his works and directed a sung mass.

He played in the Church of San Fedele and in Sant’Antonio Abate.

In 1770 he presented his first Italian opera Mithridates, king of the ponto, in the Ducal Theater of Milan.

Mozart’s Italian works, which have gone down in history and which are known to the general public, are: Cosi fan Tutte, the wedding of Figaro and Don Giovanni.

From Don Giovanni of 1787 we present: La ci darem la mano.
