8:00 pm Verizon Hall
Period ensemble expert Nicholas McGegan returns for an intimate performance of Italian-style Baroque and neo-classical music. Plus the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ is featured in one of the many great Handel concertos for the instrument with the skillful Peter Richard Conte at the keys. The Italian Baroque concerto grosso tradition inspired Respighi and Stravinsky to write historically inspired works that bookend this program. And no program of Italian music would be complete without the definitive national voice of Rossini, telling the Cinderella tale in his Overture to La Cenerentola. Two performances only!
