“Muti, then not even thirty years old, has a natural sense of the right time, of Bellini’s time – of that enchanted slowness from which the music springs and on which it rests, as on a cloud of sound that slightly moves.” — Maurizio Modugno, Musica

In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Riccardo Muti’s debut at the Teatro del Maggio, hear again Muti’s acclaimed 1970 performances of Bellini’s I Puritani. Each installment of this commemorative series has been personally selected by the Maestro from Teatro del Maggio’s archives.
