What's Interesting

  • Don Juan takes off with one of the most exciting beginnings in classical music. Strauss himself conducted the piece with the CSO in 1904.
  • The Labèque sisters give the U.S. premiere of music by Cincinnati native Bryce Dessner of the band The National.
  • Alpine Symphony was premiered in the U.S. by the CSO in 1916. This is Strauss’ last and largest symphonic work, music made for the view at the top of the world.
