Magnificent tonal splendour with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali and violinist Johan Dalene.
The initial fanfare in Also sprach Zarathustra is one of the best known pieces of classical music, rivalled only in this regard by Beethoven’s immortal Fifth Symphony. Yet there is much more to Richard Strauss’ monumental tone poem than just this striking introduction. It also provides us with beautiful string passages and magnificent tonal splendour, with the Gothenburg Concert Hall’s new organ playing a central role.
The music is based on the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s book Thus Spoke Zarathustra – a dense and multifaceted essay on philosophy, mankind and morality.
During this concert we also meet the Swedish super talent Johan Dalene as the soloist in Samuel Barber’s retrospective Violin Concerto. The evening begins with music by the London-born but USA-based composer Anna Clyne.
