Santtu-Matias Rouvali conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra

Programme:
STRAUSS Suite, Der Rosenkavalier
STRAUSS Four Last Songs
STRAUSS An Alpine Symphony

Principal Guest Conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali brings his “imaginative, often spectacular musicality” (LA Times) to three Strauss masterpieces.

He opens with the suite from Der Rosenkavalier, an opera so successful that special trains ran from Berlin to Dresden to whisk audiences to its opening run. The music paints vivid portraits of the four main characters – the Marschallin, Octavian, the young lover she knows she cannot keep, the graceful Sophie and the foolish Baron von Ochs – and their aristocratic world.
