Strauss at the Summit

Friday, July 28th - 8:00pm - Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay – 27$-107$

Of all Richard Strauss’s tone poems, the Alpine Symphony is undoubtedly the most spectacular, with its beyond full-scale orchestra, gleaming brass, velvety strings … and, above all, its masterful evocation of an excursion in the Bavarian Alps. It is a fulsome meditation on our place within nature and symbolic of life itself. Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Orchestre Métropolitain are joined by four of the most distinguished horn players of our time, who hail from the OM, the Berlin Staatskapelle, and the Berlin Philharmonic.
