Highlighting composers who demonstrated inspired musical talent at early ages, the audience hears the genius of Italian composers Rossini, Verdi, and Respighi, as well as frequent Italian visitor, Mozart. All composers on the program began writing music before they reached their teens. The program highlights Rossini’s rarely played Sonata No. 3, written when Rossini was just 12 years old. The evening also highlights pieces inspired by the Italian countryside and some of the most beautiful music ever written.
