Under the direction of Maestro Kristian Alexander, the Kindred Spirits Orchestra performs a night of unforgettable evocative music. Ottorino Respighi’s imaginative portrait of The Fountains of Rome comes to musical life with his vibrant and stirring orchestrations. Prokofiev masterfully combines the virtuosic solo cello with diverse orchestral textures in his Symphony-Concerto. Rounding out the program is Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances: the last work the composer would ever write, he himself inscribing the word “Hallelujah” on the last page of the manuscript.
