Claudio Abbado, Orchestra Mozart play Bach in 2012. L'Aquila's inauguratory concert after disaster.

In memoriam, maestro.

Claudio Abbado
June 26, 1933 - January 20, 2014



Simple, beautiful readings of Bach,
played by the Orchestra Mozart Bologna and an all-star soloist roster. 
I would wish to be remembered for having participated in soundmaking like this, for its feeling of positivity and camaraderie.

Orchestra Mozart conducted by Claudio Abbado officially inaugurated the new
temporary Auditorium in L'Aquila with a special concert in the presence of
the President of the Italian Republic, Giorgio Napolitano.



All thanks to Alessandro from concertarchive. I straightup repackaged his broadcast recording, retagged and made up some dubious art for it.

It's in lossy format. But the sounds transcend all that stuff. I would wish to be remembered for having participated in soundmaking of this simplicity and beauty.
