Chapel Hill Philharmonia Presents "Via the Appian Way"

CHAPEL HILL, NC — Posted February 25, 2018

On Sunday, March 11, the Chapel Hill Philharmonia will perform a classical concert of dramatic, spectacular music. Featured oboist Anna Lampidis, an award-winning soloist here and abroad, plays Mozart's "Oboe Concerto." Possibly the most important oboe concerto ever composed, the piece is elegant and joyful. Conductor Donald Oehler leads off the concert with the orchestra playing Beethoven's "Coriolan Overture." The stormy and heroic music well suits the play about the general Coriolanus who wrestled with invading Rome. Respighi's colorful "Pines of Rome" tone poem in four movements concludes the afternoon. Toscanini selected Respighi's vivid, pictorial music for both his first and last concerts with the New York Philharmonia. Film composer John Williams recognizes Respighi as a major influence on his work. The music is truly grand.

The concert is at 3:00 pm in Moeser Auditorium in Hill Hall on the UNC-CH campus. Admission is free. The program is supported by the NC Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
