Why See Columbus Symphony Orchestra - Alpine Symphony?

The splendor of nature is reflected in this program from the Columbus Symphony Orchestra as led by conductor Rossen Milanov. Featuring Strauss' Alpine adventure in his 1915 tone poem Eine Alpensinfonie and Respighi's influential I Pini di Roma, enjoy a journey around Europe's most stunning landscapes from the comfort of the Ohio Theatre.

Eine Alpensinfonie (An Alpine Symphony)
Following eleven hours on a mountain climb and based on his boyhood experiences, Strauss guides us from dawn to dusk through meadows and undergrowth in the foothills to the divinity of the summit during a magnificent tempest. Widely esteemed by the classical community, a 1981 recording by the Berliner Philharmoniker was pressed into one of the world's first ever CD releases.

I Pini di Roma (The Pines of Rome)
A whistle stop tour of Rome is included in Respighi's authoritative work, covering pines at four locations throughout the city. From the deloght of children playing in the Villa Borghese Gardens to the might of the Roman Republic, The Pines is an evocative and ultimately joyful work that reads at once as a love letter and history lesson.
