The Maggio Musicale Fiorentino broadcasts on November 11, 2020 at 8 pm, the live recording of the concert “The Creation” by Franz Joseph Haydn, conducted by Zubin Mehta, suspended during the live broadcast, on November 10, due to a technical problem.

Florence 11 November 2020 – A technical problem concerning the audio – which despite the attempts it was not possible to solve during the live broadcast – affected the quality of the symphonic choral concert Die Schöpfung by Franz Joseph Haydn conducted by Maestro Zubin Mehta.

It was therefore necessary to stop the online broadcasting of the concert while the recording continued smoothly without interruptions. The performance of the soloists, choir and orchestra conducted by Maestro Mehta was excellent, as was the recording itself.

The Teatro del Maggio, apologizing to the artists and the audience for the inconvenience, re-proposes the live recording of the performance on 11 November at 8 pm. The transmission channels will be the same: the Theater’s website and social media as well as the Anfols and Ansa Agency website, which May thanks for their willingness to put the event on the calendar again.
