With its vivid orchestral effects, Respighi's Pines of Rome is one of the most beloved works in the classical repertoire. 

  • Guest conductor Peter Oundjian is music director of Toronto Symphony.
  • Saint-Saëns' Piano Concerto No. 2 is a showpiece for Spanish virtuoso Javier Perianes, who makes his Nashville Symphony debut.
  • Written while the composer was staying in Rome, Barber's Symphony No. 1 is an intensely lyrical and expressive work. 
  • Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture completes our colorful musical travelogue to Rome.

Our free Classical Conversations take place one hour before all Classical Series evening concerts in the Balcony Lobby. Led by conductors, guest artists and musicians, these informative talks are a great way to learn the story behind the music.

An informal question-and-answer session with the conductor will take place 10 minutes after the close of the concert, at the back of the orchestra level.
