STRAUSS Also Sprach Zarathustra

Millions of movie fans the world over have heard the grand fanfare from Also Sprach Zarathustra at
the beginning of Kubrick’s epic film 2001: A Space Odyssey. But if you’ve never heard it live, you’re in for a thrill — a multitude of brasses, the full orchestra, and the Lay Family Concert Organ, all hailing a primeval sunrise. To open the concert, Co-Concertmaster Nathan Olson solos in Britten’s fiendishly difficult Violin Concerto.

PERFORMANCE PRELUDES
Join us for a special pre-concert talk with Assistant Conductor Maurice Cohn! The talks will take place from Horchow Hall starting at 6:30pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and 2:00pm on Sunday.
