Thursday, April 26, 2018

7:30 pm Verizon Hall
This engaging concert evokes Italy and Egypt (with a French accent). Berlioz presents all the color and excitement of a Roman carnival. Saint-Saëns composed his Fifth Piano Concerto in Luxor (hence the name); Nicholas Angelich serves up its exotic musical flavor with panache. Guillaume Connesson based his new work on a line from the Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi's The Calm after the Storm, while the Italian Respighi paints a landscape portrait as enduring as the Eternal City itself. Stéphane Denève leads our tour-de-force tour.

These concerts will be LiveNote enabled.
