Two from Verdi
We hear from a concert at the Grand Teton Music Festival from last summer. The orchestra kicked off an evening with music by Verdi, the overture to his opera "La Forza del Destino." Eiji Oue conducts. Then the Italian theme continues with a performance from pianist Evgeny Kissin. He plays a "concert paraphrase" on themes from Verdi's opera "Rigoletto."
