In February, take a musical tour of Italy through the ages of great music-making with the Erie Philharmonic.

Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto ‘Ala Rustica’ is filled with the energy and vibrant dance rhythms of the countryside. Respighi’s homage to the Renaissance includes elegant string arrangements of tunes from long, long ago. Famed opera composer Giuseppe Verdi wrote only one string quartet, and what a passionate statement of Italianate Romanticism it is! Puccini, also best known for his operas, offers an eloquent statement on the passing of a treasured friend in his ‘Crisamtemi.’ To cap it all off, we play a charming String Sonata penned by a twelve-year-old budding composer who later became Italy’s most successful maestro of the operatic stage, one Gioachino Rossini.
