Part of SA2 Saturday Evening 2
About This Performance
This enticing program boasts masterworks by two giants of late German Romanticism, though the two composers take a very different approach in their music.
Before intermission, it’s the pristine, Apollonian majesty of Johannes Brahms’ Violin Concerto, akin to Beethoven’s in its gravity, which Joshua Bell will take to the heights.
After the break, a decidedly Dionysian outlook takes over with Strauss’ vivid characterization of the bold seducer Don Juan, and then Strauss brilliantly captures in orchestral garb the defiant joker of German folklore, Till Eulenspiegel.
