R. STRAUSS: Don Juan
Bryce DESSNER: Concerto for Two Pianos [U.S. Premiere]
R. STRAUSS: An Alpine Symphony
What’s interesting about this concert:
• Richard Strauss himself conducted Don Juan with the CSO and so the season opens with this exciting piece he chose for his visit to Cincinnati. The work features one of the most exciting beginnings in classical music.
• Alpine Symphony, premiered in the U.S. by the CSO, reflects a spiritual transformation through the metaphor of a mountain hike from daybreak to nightfall.
• The Labèque sisters give the American premiere of music NPR calls “gorgeous, full-hearted” by Cincinnati native Bryce Dessner of The National.
This concert is part of Series 1.
