Experience the vibrancy of Italian chamber music from a charming corner of the city. A string quartet of ASO musicians performs a program that spans four centuries, from Isabella Leonarda, a 17th century Ursuline Nun, to the 20th century expressionist and avant-garde composer, Niccolò Castiglioni. The finale of the concert will feature the soaring melodies and filigreed lines of the 19th century bel canto master, Gaetano Donizetti.
