Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia

The celebrated Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia will delight New York audience with two concerts at the Carnegie Hall, Friday, October 20, and Saturday October 21.

First concert program:

VERDI Sinfonia from Aida 
PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No. 3 
RESPIGHI Fountains of Rome 
RESPIGHI Pines of Rome 

The rarely performed Sinfonia that Verdi wrote for the La Scala premiere of Aida is a full-fledged overture that reflects themes from the opera, while Respighi’s Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome are spectacularly orchestrated tone poems that evoke the beauty of the Eternal City.

Second concert program:

SALVATORE SCIARRINO La nuova Euridice secondo Rilke (NY Premiere)
MAHLER Symphony No. 6

Tragedy and rapture are the essence of Mahler’s Sixth Symphony. The storm-tossed finale’s three titanic hammer blows presaged personal tragedies in Mahler’s life, including his own mortal illness. Superstitious, he removed the third blow. But the symphony overflows with life-affirming joys as well, from peaceful memories of mountain pastures—listen for the cowbells—to the ecstatic portrait of his wife, Alma, that fills the first movement.
