“Let my music be performed!” were the last words by Aldo Finzi, the composer who was not allowed to express his art because of being Jewish.
In 1937 the Theatre La Scala in Milan holds a contest for a new opera and the winner should have been Finzi himself with the opera “La Serenata la vento” (Serenade to the wind). However, racial laws come to force after a few months, the contest is cancelled and the prize will never be assigned.
The composer is forced to work anonymously since. He dies prematurely in 1945 without having seen this work represented.
75 years after its creation “La Serenata al vento” will have its world premiere.
This is the story of an artist, but also the story about music and an era.
