Symphony Concert

Verdi, Beethoven, Strauss & Respighi
André Raphel, conductor
Deborah Selig, soprano

Giuseppe Verdi’s intense overture to “La Forza del Destino” opens this breath taking season finale! Beethoven’s often overlooked Symphony No. 4 continues with its cheerful and engaging melodic line. Soprano, Deborah Selig joins the WSO for Richard Strauss’ “Five Songs with Orchestra.” The Boston Globe called Ms. Selig “an impressively nimble, lustrous soprano.” This majestic and lyrical concert concludes with Ottorino Respighi’s “Pines of Rome,” paying tribute to the Eternal City. This musical portrait continues to be, a great success and popular favorite in the orchestral repertoire, a powerful performance not to be missed
