An Alpine Symphony

When: Thu., Sept. 24 2015

Richard Strauss liked the outdoors and his An Alpine Symphony provides a musical depiction of a day spent climbing an Alpine mountain. One of the best orchestral tone poems ever written, it’s challenging to perform and requires a huge orchestra of some 125 musicians. For tonight's concert, conductor Franz Welser-Möst has paired the symphony with Mozart's final symphony, nicknamed “Jupiter.” The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at Severance Hall and tickets start at $29. Performances are scheduled for tomorrow and Saturday (at 8 p.m.) as well. (Niesel)
