Conductor: Fabio Mechetti

Conductor Laureate Fabio Mechetti (1993-2004) returns to conduct a program highlighting Richard Strauss, one of the greatest storytellers in music. Strauss refined the tone poem to its ultimate point: he apparently once said, “I want to be able to describe a teaspoon musically.” Don Juan captures the swashbuckling swagger of the great philanderer and is an ultimately cautionary tale, while the love triangle in his opera, Der Rosenkavalier, explores the cyclical nature of age and love in the backdrop of a comic 18th century Vienna. The last moments of this suite taken from the opera are exquisite, touching and heartbreaking as old love steps aside for new.
