Lorin Maazel conductor
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
