Review: The Syracuse University Symphony allowed its passion to shine through in a performance featuring Rossini and Sibelius.

The grandiose sounds of Italian composer Gioachino Rossini paired with the deeply textured and intricate work of Finish composer Jean Sibelius formed a multilayered symphonic pallet Sunday in Setnor Auditorium.

Under the baton of James Tapia, the Syracuse University Symphony Orchestra performed Gioachino Rossini’s short overture from his opera “La gazza Ladra” along with Jean Sibelius’s laborious “Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 43.”
