young loveThe winners of our 2014–2015 Competition for Young Musicians are featured on this program celebrating youth and romance. Gioachino Rossini was just twenty-four when his celebrated opera The Barber of Seville premiered. The overture, instantly recognizable to generations of listeners, captures all the drama and excitement of forbidden love. Our program concludes with Shakespeare’s tragic tale of two star-crossed lovers, perfectly captured in Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture.
