From Respighi’s passionate Fountains of Rome to Russian composer Liadov’s serene Enchanted Lake, these concerts will awaken the senses and present the listener with a musical rainbow of sound. The program also holds Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3, featuring guest organist Jonathan Rudy, and containing a melody called “so gorgeous that it seems plucked from an operatic love scene by Bizet or Gounod.”
“Fountains of Rome should stir memories for those of you who’ve seen any of the great fountains in the old city. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice will definitely make those who’ve seen Disney’s Fantasia see great waves and you all will be overwhelmed by the sheer power and excitement of the Organ Symphony!” Andrew Grams
