This concert is generously underwritten by Tatiana and Gerret Copeland.

Pre-concert discussion begins at 6:30 p.m.

From David Amado:

Three masterpieces: each of which speaks to, or listens to, Hollywood. Respighi’s glittering Fountains of Rome is cinematic in its sweep, drama, and jaw-dropping technicolor orchestration; Rachmaninoff’s ripe romanticism of his final symphonythough written in Switzerland, speaks the lush language of Hollywood’s golden age. Rozsa’s (El Cid, Ben-Hur) Cello Concerto (featuring brilliant young cellist Nick Canellakis) is concert music written by a silver screen master.
