Program Notes & Works
Caroline Shaw’s Punctum reaches across the centuries for audible inspiration in J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion.
Symphony No. 40
One of Mozart’s few major instrumental works in a minor key, the Symphony No. 40 is as intense and dramatic as anything the composer ever wrote.
An Alpine Symphony
The last of Richard Strauss’s tone poems, An Alpine Symphony musically depicts a mountain-climbing expedition from the composer’s childhood and reflects his “adoration of eternal, glorious nature” as well as the influence of Nietzschean philosophy.
