Strauss, Metamorphosenbiography

Yearning and contemplative, Strauss’s Metamorphosen for 23 solo strings is subtitled In Memoriam and serves here as a fitting tribute to the composer on the 150th anniversary of his birth in June 1864. Composed during the closing months of World War II, as the society Strauss loved was being consumed by conflict, the work is a lament for Germany’s destruction and an elegy for the devastating bombing of Munich. This post-concert performance takes place in the stark and evocative setting of the Old Municipal Market.
