On October 26, 2023, the American Academy in Rome will host a special concert at the Villa Aurelia dedicated to the Pines of Rome, in recognition of the beauty they share, the symbolic force of their presence, and the shade and shadow they provide. The umbrella pines at Villa Aurelia and the American Academy were planted in 1921 and for more than a century have stood sentinel over us as our artists and scholars studied, sculpted, painted, created, wrote.
This concert, which will feature works by composers who have had a personal relationship with AAR, either as Rome Prize Fellows or Residents or as our frequent guests, is our way of drawing the spotlight on these arboreal giants that haunt the dreams of those who have had the pleasure of staying with us. We hope, with this concert, to honor the Pinus pinea on our grounds and in Rome, to share the beauty of the music that has been created by artists and performers both American and Italian, and to thank the city of Rome for allowing us to be a part of its landscape for the past 129 years.
The concert will feature works by:
- Richard Aaker Trythall (1967 Fellow, 1971 Resident)
- Andy Akiho (2015 Fellow)
- David Lang (1991 Fellow, 2017 Resident)
- Eric Nathan (2014 Fellow)
- Ottorino Respighi
- Marco Sinopoli (Advisor)
- Christopher Stark (2023 Fellow)
- Pamela Z (2020 Fellow)
Music direction by Timothy Martin.
We wish to recognize the many individuals and foundations who have made music programming possible at the American Academy in Rome in recent years, including the Fromm Music Foundation, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, and the Amphion Foundation.
Due to overwhelming demand, this event is SOLD OUT.
With the patricinio of the Comune di Roma.
