The Philadelphia Orchestra -- Pines of Rome
This program builds to a boisterous close with Respighi’s epic tone poem The Pines of Rome. This piece is a feast of sound as the orchestra is augmented by organ, a battery of percussion, recorded bird calls, and antiphonal brass choirs throughout the hall. It is a wonderful contrast to the light and humorous Eighth Symphony of Beethoven. The exceptional pianist Lise de la Salle makes her Philadelphia Orchestra debut with Liszt’s impassioned Piano Concerto No. 2.
