A Jacobs Masterworks Concert

Jader Bignamini, conductor

Rhythms of Italian music pervade this concert as our “It’s About Time” festival continues. Gioacchino Rossini’s French opera about the Swiss fighting Austrian oppression was transformed into the signature music of American pop culture icon The Lone Ranger due to its perfectly propulsive, “Hi-Ho Silver!” beat. Giuseppe Martucci provides a perfect sample of Italian night music, and Ottorino Respighi gloriously tramps ghost legions down the Appian Way in The Pines of Rome. Rising young Italian conductor Jader Bignamini leads the program.

The San Diego Union-Tribune has published a preview story about conductor Jader Bignamini, who talks about his approach to conducting and how much he is looking forward to his time in San Diego.
