Carnaval Romain – Season Closing Concert

DATE: 24/06/2017
TIME: 8:00 PM till 10:00 PM

In this distinctly Roman themed concert,
the orchestra sets the scene with Berlioz’s
Roman Carnival Overture before being joined
by the brilliant young pianist Dmitry Ishkanov
to perform Kabalevsky’s Third Piano Concerto.
Inspired by the heroic gladiator who led the
slave uprising against the Roman Republic,
Khachaturian’s Spartacus Suite has also been
featured in many movie scores.
Respighi’s Pines of Rome is a symphonic poem
which vividly depicts pine trees in four different
locations across Rome including at the Villa
Borghese Gardens and along the Appian Way
