Respighi’s Songs and Late Violin Concerto, and a Verdi Suite
Friday, April 23, 2021 at 7:30pm
DiMenna Center’s Cary Hall
Join us in celebrating the orchestra’s next Naxos recording of Respighi’s music with a festive evening featuring the Tre Liriche (Three Art Songs) [orchestration completed by Di Vittorio] and Il Lamento di Arianna (Ariadne’s Lament) – both critical editions by Di Vittorio, and Respighi’s last violin concerto Poema Autunnale (Autumn Poem). The program will end with Di Vittorio’s Suite Verdiana, a free transcription capturing music from Verdi’s most famous operas. This special event, open rehearsal and performance, will be videotaped before a live audience surrounding the orchestra and conclude with a post-concert drinks reception with the artists present, sponsored by Marchese Antinori wines.
