What's Interesting

Till Eulenspiegel follows the exploits of a noted trickster but doesn’t fool around. The super virtuosic work is a freewheeling tour de force for every member of the Orchestra, beginning with a famous French horn solo. CSO Principal Horn Elizabeth Freimuth steps into the spotlight with a popular early concerto by Strauss, and Debussy’s impressionistic Images create the musical equivalent of a Monet masterpiece.
