Roman Carnival Overture. Louis-Hector Berlioz (11 December 1803 – 8 March 1869) was a French Romantic composer and conductor. Among his major works were a number of "overtures", many of which have become popular concert pieces. They include true overtures, intended to introduce operas, but also independent concert overtures that are in effect the first orchestral tone poems. The Roman Carnival Overture composed in 1843 is a stand-alone overture scored for large orchestra and intended for concert performance. The overture is made up of themes from the carnival scene in Berlioz's opera Benvenuto Cellini, and features a prominent and famous solo for the English Horn.

Les contes d’Hoffmann. Jacques Offenbach (20 June 1819 – 5 October 1880) a German-born French composer, cellist and impresario of the Romantic period  had only one ambition, to compose comic pieces for the musical theatre. Today he is remembered for his nearly 100 operettas of the 1850s to the 1870s. This evening, Soprano Violet Madson, 1st place winner of the WVSO’s Young Musician Competition, joins the orchestra in a performance of Antonia’s aria “Elle a fui, la tourterelle” from Offenbach’s only opera, The Tales of Hoffmann.

Pines of Rome. Ottorino Respighi (9 July 1879 – 18 April 1936) was an Italian composer, violinist, teacher, and musicologist and one of the leading Italian composers of the early 20th century. Born in Bologna to a musical and artistic family, he located to Rome in 1913 to become professor of composition at the Liceo Musicale di Santa Cecilia.  A long relationship between the great Italian conductor Arturo Toscanini and the composer brought many of Respighi's masterpieces before the public eye, among them his second Roman tone poem, Pines of Rome that went on to become one of his most widely known and recorded pieces. Many consider Pines to be one of the greatest pieces of music ever written. Commented one audience member after a performance of Pines: "The music literally toys with my soul. I can genuinely feel my own emotions moving. I want to smile, cry and laugh in disbelief all at the same time. Absolutely stunning."
