Maestro Marco Parisotto directs the last program of the Orchestra Season as a prelude to the celebration of Holy Week: On Thursday the 23rd and Sunday the 26th of March, music inspired by various episodes of the Bible will be offered for the listeners’ delight.
The program opens with the emblematic Overture to the opera “Nabucco” by Giuseppe Verdi, which narrates the episode in which the Jews were captured by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. Two selections of film music follow: the Suite from Ben-Hur, by Miklós Rósza, and the Elmer Bernstein Prelude to The Ten Commandments. Another Old Testament story to be presented is that of Samson and Delilah, in the form of the orgiastic Bacchanale from the French opera on this subject by composer Camille Saint-Saëns. OFJ Flautist Katherine Rivas will offer her interpretation of the 1902 Concertino for flute in D major by French composer Cécile Chaminade.
To conclude the program, the ballet suite from Belkis, Queen of Sheba by Ottorino Respighi relates the most erotic episode in the Bible: the visit by the Queen of Sheba to the grand palace of King Solomon in Jerusalem.
