Light in Classical Music: Richard Strauss's "An Alpine Symphony"

2020.1.7 16:15


Many composers have depicted light in their works, but few have done it with such overwhelming effect as Richard Strauss in his tone poem "An Alpine Symphony." Composed in 1915, the work follows the climb of an Alpine mountain from daybreak to nightfall.

Come and join us for an educational screening of "An Alpine Symphony," played by the Saxon State Orchestra under Giuseppe Sinopoli. The first part of the screening will introduce you to the work, followed by a complete performance of the piece.

Watch this concert and many other recorded performances for free with your Library membership on Naxos Video Library.
