This performance will surely be an immersive experience for all of our musicians and audience alike as Respighi’s work recalls the past glories of the Roman republic in a representation of dawn on the great military road leading into Rome. The final movement portrays pine trees along the Appian Way in the misty dawn, as a triumphant legion advances along the road in the brilliance of the newly-rising sun. Respighi wanted the ground to tremble under the footsteps of his army and with the help of the areas finest musicians like you, we intend to recreate this epic work with great power and brilliance.
