Italian orchestra gives a taste of opera and symphony

Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, a Rome-based symphonic orchestra led by conductor Antonio Pappano, is offering Chinese audiences a mix of opera and symphony.

Santa Cecilia, founded in 1908, was the first Italian ensemble to dedicate itself to symphonic repertoire instead of opera. The orchestra began its weeklong Chinese tour in Hong Kong on Thursday, and will perform two concerts in Beijing next week on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The orchestra's repertoire comprises musical programs with strong emotional contrast: Russian composer Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No 3 and Beethoven's classical pieces.
