de Waart Conducts All-Strauss

1:30 PM
Friday, May 16, 2014

Acclaimed Dutch conductor Edo de Waart leads a program devoted to some of Richard Strauss’s most poignant and gorgeous music. The early yet masterful Serenade for Wind Instruments is followed by Metamorphosen, Strauss’s moving lament for Dresden, the German city notoriously destroyed by firebombing in World War II. This all-Strauss program concludes with his final post-war masterworks: the pastoral Oboe Concerto and the serenely beautiful Four Last Songs.


  • Strauss Serenade in E-flat Major
  • Strauss Metamorphosen
  • Strauss Oboe Concerto
  • Strauss Four Last Songs
