Richard Strauss An Alpine Symphony
Richard Strauss Also sprach Zarathustra
Our Strauss celebrations continue with two of his most celebrated orchestral blockbusters. Also sprach Zarathustra, Strauss’s 'homage to Nietzsche’s genius', became a hit after film director Stanley Kubrick used it for 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Alpine Symphony, scored for a vast orchestra, recounts a mountaineering adventure in graphic detail.
This concert is part of the Strauss 150th Anniversary 2014 series
