Happy birthday dear Strauss-y, happy birthday to you
The Philharmonia, conducted by Philippe Jordan, perform in the first of a series of concerts celebrating Strauss' 150th anniversary. Scenes from Salome come to life, thanks to soprano Angela Denoke, with power and shock weaved into the score. There will also be a selection of other material, ranging from Don Juan to Das Rosenband (Op.36 No.1), to show off Strauss' advanced harmonious melodies and Romantic orchestral works. Seating allocated on arrival. Latecomers may not be admitted.
