Mussorgsky: Night on Bold Mountain Pasatieri: Viola Concerto, Jo Nardolillo, viola. World Premiere Mendelssohn: Symphony No.4 "Italian" One of the most fulfilling aspects of performing is to bring a new work to life. Composer Thomas Pasatieri has entrusted LUCO to premiere his new Viola Concerto in the hands of virtuoso Jo Nardolillo. Night on Bald Mountain is a powerfully evocative work from the mind of a completely original musical genius. Mendelssohn was only 20 when he visited Italy for the first time. He was so taken by such vibrant and colorful culture that he composed one of his most dazzling and joyful compositions as a tribute to the Italian way of life.
