Respighi Pines of Rome

Feb 19, 2021 - Feb 21, 2021


Traverse the Italian countryside with Respighi's frolicking Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome – the first two entries in his "Roman Trilogy" – painting a colorful symphonic portrait of light and land, while masterfully depicting Rome's famous fountains and pine trees in the course of a day. Conductor Christian Reif will be joined by virtuosic violinist Karen Gomyo – hailed as "...a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance, and intensity" by the Chicago Tribune – in her Colorado Symphony return as featured soloist on Shostakovich's folk melody-laden first Violin Concerto. This is a transportive performance sure to carry away your winter doldrums!
