Filarmonica della Scala was first set up by Claudio Abbado and the musicians of La Scala Opera House in 1982 with the objective of developing a symphonic repertoire in order to add a further dimension to La Scala’s great operatic tradition. The following year Filarmonica formed a separate Association. Carlo Maria Giulini conducted the Orchestra in more than 90 concerts and took it on its first international tours. Riccardo Muti then became the Principal Conductor from 1987 to 2005, helping the Orchestra to grow artistically and establishing it as a regular visitor to some of the most prestigious international concert halls. The Orchestra has also been able to develop fruitful collaborative relations with some of the greatest conductors of the time: Georges Prêtre, Lorin Maazel and Wolfgang Sawallisch, for example, worked with the Orchestra in its first concert seasons and then became honorary members together with Valery Gergiev. Over the years came other important contributions, from directors such as Leonard Bernstein, Semyon Bychkov, Myung-Whun Chung, James Conlon, Gustavo Dudamel, Peter Eötvös, Christoph Eschenbach, John Eliot Gardiner, Valery Gergiev, Philippe Jordan, Zubin Mehta, Gianandrea Noseda, Seiji Ozawa, Antonio Pappano, Gennadij Rozdestvenskij, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Yuri Temirkanov and Franz Welser–Möst. From 2006 the Filarmonica has intensified its relations with Daniel Barenboim, Riccardo Chailly, Daniel Harding, Daniele Gatti and Valery Gergiev.
