Strauss at the Summit

Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay
28 July 2023
8:00 pm

Of all Richard Strauss’s tone poems, the Alpine Symphony is undoubtedly the most spectacular, with its beyond full-scale orchestra, gleaming brass, velvety strings … and, above all, its masterful evocation of an excursion in the Bavarian Alps. It is a fulsome meditation on our place within nature and symbolic of life itself. Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Orchestre Métropolitain make their grand return to the Festival, joined by four of the most distinguished horn players of our time, who hail from the OM, the Berlin Staatskapelle, and the Berlin Philharmonic.
