Conductor's Note from Eugene Albulescu:
“This is an amazing family-friendly concert. The Emperor and the Nightingale is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s tale and sure to inspire younger audiences, while the companion piece, The Pines of Rome is aimed for slightly older children.  Respighi was inspired to write the piece by experiencing these amazing trees situated all over Rome, Italy.  Last spring, we went to Rome and took footage of these inspiring trees in the actual historic settings described in the musical movements of Pines. Both works will appeal to parents and kids equally, and the overhead animated projections by Linda Ganus enlighten and enliven the music. The concerts are intended for the whole family and we included a special Saturday afternoon matinee to make it even more child-friendly.”
