What's Interesting

  • Strauss’ epic showpiece features battling brass (onstage and off) and a famous violin solo played by our Concertmaster, Stefani Matsuo.
  • Mozart’s opera Idomeneo sets to music the struggles of a warrior king after the events of the Trojan War.
  • Pianist Hélène Grimaud, a longtime friend of the Orchestra and “a taker of chances” (The New Yorker), returns with a Ravel concerto that kept Mozart in mind.
