Program Notes

Intermezzo Sinfonico

Elliot Del Borgo, composer

Intermezzo Sinfonico is from the introduction to the second act of Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni. This piece is one of the most loved orchestral interludes in all of operatic literature. Expressive and sensitive melodic lines are built on simple, yet very warm, romantic harmonies. Del Borgo’s transcription seeks to capture the fullness of tone present in the string section by utilizing the warm colors and sonorities of the symphonic band.
