BSO: Italian Passion

Event Date: Sun 12 November 2017

An evening of Italian-influenced music opens with Tchaikovsky’s Overture to Verona’s famous star-crossed lovers – music that has become synonymous with the romantic declaration of love following its use in numerous films. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.24 is considered to be one of his greatest. It features more instruments than any other of his concertos, allowing for an intricate accompaniment to the soloist. Mascagni’s Intermezzo is one of the most famous pieces of classical music, and Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony with its sunny, refreshing character and allusions of traditional Italian folk songs is equally uplifting.
