Basilica di San Marco.
Lorin Maazel is arriving at the Basilica di San Marco to conduct the neo Symphonica Toscanini, an offshoot of the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini of which he is also musical director. The concert was organized by Venice Foundation and the proceeds will finance the restoration of The cupola of Creation, inside the Basilica. Note, the score the Maestro is carrying, however, also note that he conducted the whole of Anton Bruckner's 8th Symphony without it. Since the age of five when he started studying the violin and the piano he has had an exceptional photographic memory. Another amusing tidbit is that the Maestro never wears tails, he wears his white tie with an impeccably cut dinner jacket.
