May 4-6, 2017
LIGETI: Concert Românesc
BRITTEN: Violin Concerto
STRAUSS: Also sprach Zarathustra ("Thus Spoke Zarathustra")
The renowned violinist Midori, a favorite of Cincinnati audiences since her first appearances here when she was still in her teens, will perform Britten’s masterful and technically dazzling Violin Concerto. Strauss’ dynamic Also sprach Zarathustra, whose opening flourish is among the most recognizable ever in classical music (think 2001: A Space Odyssey) brings the program to an exhilarating conclusion.
