A Roman Holiday Virginia Symphony
Share the warmth of the seven hills of Rome as the Orchestra features Respighi’s powerful Roman Festivals, the third in his popular “Roman Trilogy” of orchestral favorites. This enchanted concert opens with Beethoven’s ever beloved Violin Concerto performed through the hands of master soloist Tianwa Yang, quoted to be, “the most important violinist to come on the scene in many a year.” The beautiful intermezzo from Cavelleria Rusticana is one of those timeless pieces you never forget.
