There could be no better way to begin our celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Strauss’s birth than with this captivating programme. In his orchestral swashbuckler Don Juan Strauss takes the listener on an exhilarating helter-skelter ride of orchestral machismo, surfing the unquenchable tide of the Don’s libidinous exploits. The programme concludes with music from the climax to his sumptuous and shocking one-act opera Salome, including the famous ‘Dance of the Seven Veils’.

This concert is part of the Strauss 150th Anniversary 2014 series
