Asheville Symphony: MASTERWORKS 4 Ciao Italia

February 15, 2025 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Darko Butorac, conductor

Martina Filjak, piano

Only a few days into his visit to Italy, Mendelssohn, like many of us fortunate enough to visit Bel Paese, was already smitten: “This is Italy!” he wrote, “…and I am loving it.” He completed his Fourth Symphony shortly after his return home, and the piece — alongside the other Italy-inspired works on the program by Berlioz, Saint-Saëns, and Charpentier — paints a vibrant picture of the country as seen through the eyes of fellow non-Italians, all united in affection for the vivacious Italian culture, food, wine, and spirit.

Berlioz: Le carnaval romain Overture

Saint-Saëns: Piano Concerto No. 2

Charpentier: Impressions d’Italie, IV. Sur les Cimes

Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 4, “Italian”
