Musica Sacra Chamber Orchestra

David Rutherford, Music Director and Conductor
A Season of Masterworks

Respighi: Three Botticelli Pictures, Dvorák & Ravel
Saturday, October 18, 7:30 p.m. at Augustana

Join us in exploring one of Respighi’s greatest works: the trilogy of tone poems evoking the beauty of three iconic paintings by Sandro Botticelli of Florence’s Uffizzi Gallery. Each masterpiece has its own story, but Respighi’s great gift was the ability to create a musical narrative, capturing the drama of a visual, and expressing it in music. Like the Respighi, Dvorák’s Serenade for Wind Instruments evokes an era of castles, nobility, and dances in the village. Other works on this program: Ravel’s Pavane for a Dead Princess, Mazurka (Village Scene by the Inn) by Anatol Liadov.
