Hold on to your hats! Rococo musical loops fling us around the solar system, a precious Italian violin takes us on a journey through the centuries and under Mount Etna, where a subterranean god is brought to life. At the end of the journey awaits Antonín Dvořák’s beloved New World Symphony, whose famous lullaby features the English horn gently caressing the soul.
