Dudamel Conducts Strauss

Sun / Oct 17, 2021 - 2:00PM

Dudamel tackles three works on life, death, and love, all inspired by Romantic poetry.

About this Performance

In a program exploring music inspired by Romantic poetry, Dudamel begins with Schoenberg’s Romantic vision of a night transfigured by love. Profound themes continue in Richard Strauss’ sublime Four Last Songs, composed near the end of the composer’s life and performed by rising star South African soprano Golda Schultz with her “warm, exceedingly captivating voice” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). And Strauss has the last word with his symphonic poem Death and Transfiguration, which again touches on death but was written with a younger man’s perspective.

This performance is made possible by generous support from the Lloyd E. Rigler – Lawrence E. Deutsch Foundation.
