Music Concerts


Enjoy today's New Year's concert in Xi'an by "The Rome Festival Orchestra" from Italy. The orchestra began as a vision of a summer symphonic concert series of young American musicians in Rome by a group of Italians.  In addition to their love of symphonic music and America, one of the goals of the concerts would be to use these concerts to help Italy fight the cold war propaganda of the Italian Communist Party.  The Italian Communist Party was using a series of concerts by Russian musicians to help them win votes.  The hope was that the new series would help see that non-communists promoted the fine arts the same as the Russians.

The group had even chosen a name—The Rome Festival Orchestra.  All they needed was a plan, but none of them knew what they would need to do to bring their vision into reality.

In the summer of 1971 a young American conductor, Fritz Maraffi, was conducting a series of symphonic concerts featuring American and Italian musicians.  His concerts were receiving glowing reviews in all the major Italian newspapers.  The group recognized in Fritz Maraffi and his concerts a way to turn their vision into reality and approached him to become the Musical Director.  Maestro Maraffi was honored by the faith the group had in him and meetings began to make the vision a reality.

In the fall of 1971 and spring of 1972 the newly formed Rome Festival Orchestra began the enormous task of pulling together a series of six concerts of different programs in the summer of 1972.  Again, music critics, music lovers, and the Italian founders were delighted.  However, Maestro Maraffi knew that the Festival was a long way from where it needed to be.  After each year’s performances, the Maestro and his group have conducted a review of the performances, the logistics, and quality of the artists to make changes to keep the quality of both the Festival performances and the artists’ experience at a high level and to also allow the Festival to continue growing.
