Third Orchestra Season, 2016
The OFJ opens its Third 2016 Orchestra Season with a program conducted by its Music Director, Marco Parisotto. From Italian composer Ottorino Respighi, the symphonic poem Pines of Rome transports us from the Villa Borghese to the solemn pines of a catacomb, then onward to the Janiculum, the hill that gives us the best view of Rome and its pines by moonlight, finally arriving at the Via Appia, where we witness the march of a consul army. Next, cellist William Molina-Cestari will interpret one of the greatest monuments of the musical literature of the previous century: Sir Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto. The program concludes with the ballet The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky, a work that provoked one of the most violent outbursts in the history of musical presentation, at its 1913 Paris premiere.
This program will be presented on Thursday, October 6th at 8:30 PM in PALCCO and on Sunday, October 9th at 12:30 PM at the OFJ’s home concert hall, the Teatro Degollado.
