Over to Torino again this week, for a concert by the La Scala Philharmonic, conducted by Andrea Battistoni and featuring French-Canadian Pianist Louis Lortie in a rather short and straight-forward concert, recorded live from the stage on September 17th.

Here’s what’s on the players:

Lortie is good, as always and the audience is enthusiastic. The orchestra is a little creaky in spots, but it’s live and on-the-fly, and that’s what always makes it interesting.
