Henry Dehlinger, "Amore e ‘l cor gentil sono una cosa"
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, "Sinfonia Concertante for Four Winds in E-flat Major," K. 297b
Composed for his friends' recent nuptials in Italy, composer Henry Dehlinger’s "Amore e 'l cor gentil sono una cosa," the full title of which translates to “love and the gentle heart are one and the same,” receives its orchestral premiere with husband-and-wife duo Kerry Wilkerson and Danielle Talamantes, who sang it at the wedding!
Four National Philharmonic principal wind players show their virtuosity performing the unique, rarely presented Mozart work, scored for solo oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn and orchestra.
