The Glasgow Series

Mozart & Strauss

(Pre-Concert Talk at 6:45pm)

Richard Strauss  -  Der Rosenkavalier: Suite

Mozart  -  Piano Concerto No.24, K.491

Webern  -  Symphony, Op.21

Richard Strauss  -  Death and Transfiguration

Andreas Haefliger piano

Alexander Liebreich conductor

Richard Strauss was a showman to the last, and as he lay on his deathbed, he couldn’t resist a final quip: “Dying is just like I composed it in Death and Transfiguration”. In fact, his youthful tone poem is pure musical theatre; a breathless, technicolour celebration of life, passion and the eternal dream of artistic fulfilment. In other words, it’s a stunning showcase for our guest conductor, master-Straussian Alexander Liebreich; first, though, Strauss whirls us away to the silken delights of a fairy-tale Vienna and Anton Webern strips the classical symphony back to its absolute basics, in a masterpiece of musical refinement. But both composers revered Mozart, and Andreas Haefliger brings all his poetry and power to the tragic C minor Concerto.

Pre-concert: 6.45pm in the Recital Room

Conductor Alexander Liebreich in conversation.
