Nino Rota (1911-1979) belonged to the same generation, chronologically speaking, as Goffredo Petrassi and Bruno Maderna, the one slightly older and the other slightly younger. Yet Rota remained worlds apart from his countrymen-pioneers into the Schoenbergian postwar avant-garde; his music reflected that of older men such as Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Ottorino Respighi. Rota's concert scores were invariably tuneful and clearly orchestrated - and remarkably friendly to audiences.

The evening opened with the Overture to Rossini’s Italian operatic magnum opus, Semiramide. Boico’s beautifully judged reading of the piece did full justice to this grand-scale prototype of the classic Rossini overture - from its imposing opening, its mournful horn passages presaging the opera’s doom-laden scene which evokes of the long-dead king being recalled from the afterlife, to full-throttle abandon in the Italian composer’s celebrated crescendos.
