Composed for a friend’s recent nuptials in Italy, composer Henry Dehlinger’s Amore, the full title of which translates to “love and the gentle heart are one and the same,” receives its orchestral premiere with husband-and-wife duo of Kerry Wilkerson and Danielle Talamantes, who sang it at the wedding!
