Rosenblatt Recitals

Dear subscriber,

In the next recital it is our pleasure to present Italian tenor Giuseppe Filianoti, one of the pre-eminent lyric tenors of his generation.

Giuseppe Filianoti


Giuseppe Filianoti Tenor

Iain Burnside Pianist

» Tuesday 11 March, 7.30pm
» Wigmore Hall
» TICKETS £12, £16, £22, £26

Earmarked as a future star early in his studies, Filianoti won a highly coveted two-year scholarship to Milan’s La Scala Academy, where he met his mentor - the legendary lyric tenor Alfredo Kraus. Kraus had a decisive influence in helping the young Filianoti develop his artistic style, technique and virtuosity, which helped him to 2nd prize in the 1999 edition of Placido Domingo’s Operalia; no mean feat in a field acclaimed as one of the strongest to date, including fellow tenors Rolando Villazón and Joseph Calleja.

Filianoti made his first appearance in the UK the following year, making his Royal Opera House debut as Alfredo in La traviata, before subsequent appearances in 2005 in the title role of Donizetti’s Dom Sébastien and as Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore in 2009. Remarkably, in 2007 Filianoti overcame a paralyzed vocal chord which left him unable to sing, following surgery for a cancerous thyroid gland. A testament to his courage, dedication and perseverance, Filianoti has since established himself as a regular at La Scala and the Metropolitan Opera, recently receiving great praise for his haunting portrayal of Tito opposite Elina Garanča in Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito.

In this final video, Filianoti’s mellifluous tenor is displayed as he sings Faust’s aria ‘Giunto sul passo estremo’ at the climax of Arrigo Boïto’s Mefistofele, an item also on the programme for his Rosenblatt Recital.
