About This Performance
Strauss certainly had fun with his tone poem Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life), mocking his critics and depicting his wife with a rapturous violin solo. “A monstrous act of egotism,” one of those critics wrote after the premiere, but as novelist Romain Rolland noted, “the well-bred public was beside itself” at the work’s instrumental thunder and dramatic intelligence.
Come for: The captivating Lise de la Salle performs Beethoven’s vigorously heroic Third Concerto.
And more: Webern’s early idyll for orchestra displays full-blown Straussian Romanticism.
