Ottorino Respighi
"Ancient Airs and Dances Suite 2"
Guiseppe Verde
"La Peregrina" (ballet from Don Carlo)
Hector Berlioz
"Harold in Italy"

Join us to explore Italy with three works that reflect a bit of the sunny Mediterranean landscape, Respighi's charming take on 17th century Italian dances is followed by Verdi's tribute to the legendary pearl christened "The Wanderer". In "Harold in Italy" Berlioz conjures up his own wanderings in rustic Abruzzi, complete with misty landscapes, pilgrims and tolling bells, roving musicians and riotous brigands. Orchestra principal Patricia Whaley performs this showpiece for viola.
