Experience the earth-shattering climax of Respighi's Pines of Rome February 22 & 23
The BSO’s winter concert takes listeners from the quiet sounds of Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony to “Bainbridge” by Erich Stem – a world premiere commissioned by the BSO, to one of Respighi’s most epic tone poems written about his beloved Rome, performed by the BSO and Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra. The program also features the winner of the BSO’s 2014 Young Artist Competition.
Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony was hidden from the world until thirty-seven years after the composer’s death. Competition winner Christopher Son Richardson joins the BSO to perform the first movement of Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor. Indiana composer Erich Stem’s new work “Bainbridge” draws on inspiration from the people, culture and history of Bainbridge Island. Last, the BSO presents one of Respighi’s most epic tone poems written about his beloved Rome. Brace yourself for spectacular orchestral flair, the sounds of chanting monks and the brass infused finale that will leave you breathless in Pines of Rome.
