“I want to be the point of contact between the orchestra and the audience, keeping all their energy together. I want to demonstrate the modernity of tradition, fighting prejudice from the inside and from the outside. I want to reject all stereotypes, continuing to work so that classical music becomes synonymous with freedom and beauty, and not with boredom and constriction. (…) Everywhere I go, thanks to my profession, I think of myself as an ambassador not only for music, but for Italy, for culture, for visionary creativity and for Italian know-how, recognized the world over. Italy is this: a language that sings, a fun yet heart-breaking work, extraordinarily sensual, a country of tradition and creativity, of innovation and technique, in which every city has an excellent composer or musician that deserves attention, a record-setter in every place. A cultural heritage of intelligence and enchantment that is the only luggage I take on every trip around the world. And it is from here where “my journey” starts with a first homage, duly owed, to Puccini.” Beatrice Venezi
