About the Concert
No one captures the spirit of Italy better than Respighi, and his tone poem -- filled with children at play, moonlit evenings, mysterious catacombs, and ancient warriors -- offers a kaleidoscope of thrilling orchestral colors. Chinese composer Zhou Long mines the ecstatic energy of Japanese Taiko drumming in a work featuring our own marvelous percussion section. And Brahms proves that two soloists are better than one with his stirring "Double Concerto."
