Serata d'Amore - Gino Quilico

This promises to be an evening of storytelling, from la canzonetta Italiana to la variete Française and broadway tunes to opera.

For this concert, the famous baritone Gino Quilico draws his inspiration from the places where he has lived and reminisces of some of the musical giants he had the good fortune of working with throughout his fascinating career.

Quilico draws an overview of Paris, Rome, Montréal and New York. Serata d’Amore is a gathering where he tells his story both with words and music …. through the French chanson, the canzonetta italiana, Broadway music hall and finally opera. Quilico is accompanied by pianist Dominic Boulianne. Their complicity is palpable and a huge part in making this recital an unforgettable evening for the public.

Esteemed as an interpreter of the French and Italian repertoire, lyric baritone Gino Quil-ico has performed with the world’s major opera companies, including the Metropolitan Opera (New York), La Scala (Milano), The Royal Opera House (London), The Vienna State Opera (Vienna), the Paris Opera, the Bayerische Staatsoper (Munich), The Teatro Colon (Buenos Aires), La Fenice (Venice). He has worked with such distinguished conductors as Seiji Ozawa, Herbert Von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, Riccardo Chailly, James Levine, Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Michel Plasson and George Pretre.

“Gino is a great talent, a great voice, a real personality and a beautiful actor. He is going to be a verdi baritone who will achieve probably one of the greatest careers of all time. He has everything. Audiences are wild about him. Its a great pleasure for me to see that.” - Luciano Pavarotti (Italy,1990)
