Roman Carnival Overture

Kerson Leong, Violin
Fountains of Rome

We begin the season in Rome with Berlioz’s sparkling Roman Carnival Overture. Then we take a side-trip to Cremona for Corigliano’s Chaconne for violin and orchestra crafted from his Red Violin film score. The soloist is the brilliant young Ottawan, Kerson Leong. Back in Rome we conclude with two of Respighi’s epic tone poems – The Fountains of Rome and The Pines of Rome.
