Season Finale: Strauss Alpine Symphony


Michael Stern, conductor (bio)
Winner of the NRO Concerto Competition

Gabriela Lena Frank Contested Eden
TBD Solo, Winner of NRO Concerto Competition
Richard Strauss An Alpine Symphony, Op. 64

The Season Finale opens with a reminder of the power of our natural world in Frank’s Contested Eden. You can hear the intersection of indigenous traditions and Western classical music beauty, painting a picture of California throughout the seasons and the harsh reality of wildfires at the door. The season concludes with Strauss’ monumental Alpine Symphony, which vividly depicts a journey through the Bavarian Alps, capturing the breathtaking scenery, changing weather, and the grandeur of nature with rich orchestrations and thematic developments. Though it was inspired by a day in the Alps, you will certainly recognize our own Ten Mile Range in the music.
