The Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali of Milan made its début in 1945 with a programme that included works by Mozart, Beethoven, Stravinsky and Prokofiev. Immediately after the war, during a period of full reconstruction, the impresario Remigio Paone and music critic Ferdinando Ballo launched the new chamber orchestra with a solid classical repertoire and a particular attention to the contemporary. The orchestra won immediate success, now including works from the twentieth century that had been banned under the fascists and works composed for them by Alfredo Casella, Luigi Dallapiccola, Giorgio Federico Ghedini, Gian Francesco Malipiero, Ildebrando Pizzetti, and Ottorino Respighi, continuing with compositions by composers including Giacomo Manzoni, Franco Margola, Francesco Pennisi, Flavio Testi, Marco Tutino, Marcello Panni, Ivan Fedele, Luca Francesconi, and Fabio Vacchi. Today the orchestra includes in its concerts a wide range of music from the baroque to the contemporary and has collaborated with conductors including Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez, Aldo Ceccato, Riccardo Muti, and others. The orchestra is based at the historic Teatro Dal Verme in Milan. Starting with Nino Sanzogno, permanent conductors have included Gianluigi Gelmetti, Giampiero Taverna and Othmar Maga, followed by Daniele Gatti, Aldo Ceccato and Antonello Manacorda. Artistic direction has been entrusted to Italo Gomez, Carlo Doglioni Majer, Marcello Panni, Marco Tutino, Gianni Tangucci, Ivan Fedele and, since June 2011, Massimo Collarini.
