Michael Francis, conductor
Valentina Lisitsa, piano
Respighi: Pines of Rome
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 2
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5
If you only know the beginning — da da da dumm! – you’re missing some of the best parts in a spectacular journey from darkness to light, tragedy to triumph, conducted by Michael Francis. It’s one of three splendid masterpieces on the program. Valentina Lisitsa returns for the swoon-worthy melodies of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Respighi’s Pines of Rome is a wondrous ode to nature and the historic city.
