Masterworks VI: Pines of Rome
April 2 @ 7:30 pm CDT
The program opens with Johann Strauss Jr.’s charming waltz Voices of Spring. Roberto Díaz returns to the Quad Cities to perform Jennifer Higdon’s Grammy® Award-winning Viola Concerto; this unrelenting showpiece was written specifically for Díaz. Experience the lyricism and power of Samuel Barber’s First Symphony before we close the season with Ottorino Respighi’s beloved Pines of Rome, depicting four events witnessed by the centuries-old trees in full orchestral color.
