José Luis Gomez, conductor
Mozart: Symphony No. 36, “Linz”
R. Strauss: Alpine Symphony TSO PREMIERE
Celebrate spring by climbing an Alpine mountain! It takes over 100 musicians to perform Richard Strauss’ massive, theatrical Alpine Symphony, a gorgeously colored, consistently engaging musical travelogue of a dawn-to-dusk journey up a mountain. A lifelong avid outdoorsman, the work was inspired by the composer’s own experience as a youngster climbing mountains in the Alps. The program’s opening work will be announced later.
Complimentary “Concert Comments” with the conductor and guest artist take place one hour before the performance and give you insight into what you’re about to hear.
