Global conducting phenom Stéphane Denève conjures a vibrant, sun-dappled Italy seen through the lens of French and homegrown musical giants. No composer captured the spirit of Italy quite like its own Ottorino Respighi, whose Pines of Rome is a breathtaking ode to nature and the iconic landscapes of the Eternal City.
From climbing pine trees and mysterious catacombs to vivid bird calls, this rich canvas has been called “one of the most colorful scores of its century.” Rockstar cellist Johannes Moser returns in Camille Saint-Saëns’ First Concerto, a virtuosic tour de force.
Hector Berlioz often found inspiration in Italy, and this passionate Overture forms one outstanding example. In its U.S. premiere, Guillaume Connesson’s luscious score relishes the sweeping Italian landscape after a storm.
