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. The Florida Orchestra will perform this timeless classic at the Ruth Eckerd Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 30th.
