The Kindred Spirits Orchestra, under the direction of maestro Kristian Alexander, performs an evening of unforgettable, evocative music.
Ottorino Respighi’s symphonic poem, Fountains of Rome, comes to musical life. Written in 1916, each of the four movements depics on of Rome’s fountains at a different time of day.
Sergei Prokofiev’s Symphony-Concerto, masterfully combines the virtuosic solo cello with diverse orchestral textures.
Rounding out the program is Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, the last work the composer would ever write. Notably, Rachmaninoff, himself, inscribed the word “hallelujah” on the last page of the manuscript.
The Fountains of Rome unfolds at 8 p.m. on Feb. 9 at the Flato Markham Theatre. A pre-concert recital starts at 7:15 p.m. with a pre-concert talk at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15-$40 and available at the box office (905-305-7469) or online here.
