London Philharmonic Orchestra: An Alpine Symphony

Strauss loved the Alps and long dreamed of writing a piece based on them. When he finally found the time to do so in 1914, he went all-out for his new symphonic homage to the mountains. The orchestra wasn’t just swollen to 150 players, it included 12 off-stage horns as well as wind and thunder machines. Strauss’s magnificent journey from tentative sunrise to transcendent sunset has to be heard live to similarly long-breathed phrases and magnetic impulse of Rachmaninoff’s final piano concerto. Performers: - Vladimir Jurowski: conductor - Alexey Zuev: piano - London Philharmonic Orchestr Please note that seats will be allocated on the night upon arrival.
