    The spirit of Italy permeates our season finale with influences from the Renaissance to today. Concertmaster Charles Wetherbee is joined by his CU colleague, Nicolò Spera, for the last of our season’s pairings—a world premiere for violin and guitar by British composer Stephen Goss based on Calvino’s Invisible Cities. Orchestral favorites from opera titans Verdi and Puccini prepare the way for the surround-sound splendor of Respighi’s Pines of Rome—one of the most sonically overwhelming works in all of music.
