OA-Ferruccio-Furlanetto-photo-by-Igor-SacharovThe legendary Italian bass Ferruccio Furlanetto will return to Australian shores to perform a solo recital in Melbourne on 22 April and Sydney on 27 April, in a one night only concert in each city.

His previous recital performances in Australia received five star reviews and he describes this new program as an ‘itinerary’ of his life in music. This thrilling showcase of an illustrious career spans the almost five decades that Furlanetto has been performing on stage.

The program will include Brahms, Mussorgsky and Rachmaninov as well as beloved bass arias from The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Boris Godunov and Don Carlos.

Furlanetto is renowned for his vast range, thundering vocal power and masterful acting. He has sung with some of the biggest names in opera, including Luciano Pavarotti, José Carreras, Mirella Freni and Dame Joan Sutherland, and is known as one of the greatest voices of his generation.

In her Australian debut, the award-winning pianist Natalia Sidorenko will accompany Furlanetto in an evening of superb musical virtuosity.
