7:30 pm Verizon Hall
Two journeys to Italy bookend this program. Respighi's Pines of Rome is a sweeping pictorial of the Italian landscape. Edward Elgar's scintillating tone poem In the South commemorates a family holiday; the richly textured music conveys the Italian Riviera in all its warmth. Elgar's Introduction and Allegro is a showcase for strings. Inspired by the theater organ in William Randolph Hearst's San Simeon (fictionalized as Xanadu in Citizen Kane), Michael Daugherty's lush Once Upon a Castle brings out what the composer calls the “Technicolor” nature of the instrument. Keyboard virtuoso Paul Jacobs returns to the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ.
