The Cleveland Orchestra
Franz Welser-Möst, conductor

RESPIGHI - Ancient Airs and Dances, Set 3
WALKER - Antifonys (for string orchestra)
TCHAIKOVSKY – Souvenir de Florence

This opening performance for our In Focus series brings together new inspirations in the form of souvenirs from the past, with three musical works created across history, place, and styles. Respighi took his departure from Renaissance lute music, while American composer George Walker was inspired by the collision of music styles he experienced as a student in Paris. Tchaikovsky penned his souvenir with ideas and melodies from a trip to Italy.
