Five young artists will take the audience on an exploration of Italian song, from the lyricism of the Romantic era into the sophisticated tone poems of the verismo era, paired with a wide array of music by Italian-Americans. The program includes songs, arias and ensemble pieces by Giuseppe Verdi, Gioacchino Rossini, Ildebrando Pizzetti, Ferruccio Busoni, Alfredo Catalani, John Musto, John Corigliano, Dominick Argento and Harry Warren (the composer of 42nd Street, born Salvatore Guaragna).
