Rossini’s pastoral Overture to Guillaume Tell creates a vivid portrayal of the Alpine landscape, overflowing with luscious and memorable melodies. The sublimely resplendent Gloria by Antonio Vivaldi is the perfect toe-tapping celebration for the holidays, ecstatically bursting with vocal splendor and brass fanfare. Harold in Italy offers a delightful and musical memory book, with gorgeous solo viola--exquisitely played by Nokuthula Ngwenyama--depicting Hector Berlioz’ youthful wanderings in the countryside from Naples to Rome.
