Viva L’Italia: The Program

  • Rossini—Overture to Semiramide: A two-act opera based on the Queen of Assyria, Semiramide alternates between quiet beauty and high drama. The overture distills these two huge themes into short form as a prelude to the Italian masterpiece.
  • Verdi opera choruses: four excerpts, including the “Triumphal March” from the epic Aida and the “Gypsy and Picadors Chorus” from La traviata, the heart-breaking work that caused Julia Roberts to burst into tears in Pretty Woman.
  • Tchaikovsky—Capriccio Italien: Inspired by a trip the composer took to Rome during Carnival, the work incorporates elements from Italian street bands, folk songs, and a tarantella.
  • Respighi—Pines of Rome: Four distinct movements compel listeners through time, as Respighi conjures the colors of ancient, Renaissance, and modern Rome. At its premiere in 1924 (in Rome, no less), the bright and wild first movement had the audience scoffing and jeering. But by the final movement, they were applauding its beauty before the piece had even concluded.

Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra

In 1928, four musicians from an Ann Arbor church joined together to play at services. Decades later, after several names and a number of music directors, the orchestra continues strong. Current music director Arie Lipsky leads the group through programs tailored for listeners of all ages. That emphasis on accessibility even extends beyond the orchestra—the orchestra reaches out to the community with a number of school programs that engage and transform music for children.
