Just weeks after presenting the music of Spain, the Houston Symphony continues its musical journey through Europe with a tour of Italy in The Pines of Rome, featuring guest conductor Vasily Petrenko and violinist Elina Vähälä. Verdi’s overture to Un giorno di regno and John Corigliano’s The Red Violin Concerto, based on the Oscar-winning film score, will set the table for Ottorino Respighi’s expertly paired companion pieces, The Fountains of Rome and The Pines of Rome. “The composer painted such a vivid picture,” says Rebecca Zabinski, Houston Symphony artistic administrator. “The orchestra takes you on such a journey. It’s not intimidating. It’s not challenging for the ear. This is the perfect music for someone coming for the fist time.”

8 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, visit houstonsymphony.org or call 713-224-7575. $25 to $136.
