Program Notes

Telling the story of one of the most revered martyrs, Zaninelli has created a striking work for advanced solo piano and young band. Saint Cecilia, the patroness of musicians, is said to have "sang her heart to the Lord" as musicians played at her wedding. This beauty and passion is captured brilliantly in this dynamic work.
