Roberto Cani and Symphony Of The Americas in Superb Performances of Scores from Romanticism's Golden Age

Roberto Cani Violin

Italian violinist Roberto Cani joined the Symphony of the Americas on Tuesday night for a program of mostly late 19th century music from the golden age of artistic romanticism.

Cani, who has played with the Ft. Lauderdale based ensemble several times in past seasons, was a late replacement for Florin Ionescu-Galati who was unable to obtain a visa to travel to the United States for the concert. Cani was nothing short of sensational. From the moment he played the violin's initial entrance in Henryk Wieniawski's Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor, Cani's tonal gleam and sterling technique had the audience at the Broward Center's Amaturo Theater on the edge of their seats.

The return of a beloved artist and the Czech infused melodies and rhythms of Antonín Dvorák resounded in the Broward Center's Amaturo Theater on Tuesday as the Symphony of the Americas presented Dvorák Totems, a celebration of the master's fusion of native Bohemian dance and nostalgia with the cultural vistas of the New World. Israeli born cellist Yehuda Hanani, remembered by many South Florida music lovers for his Close Encounters with Music concert-lecture series, played Dvorák's monumental Cello Concerto in B minor, his first appearance with the orchestra in three decades.
