R. STRAUSS Don Quixote
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 5 in E minor

Embark on a grand musical journey with Strauss’s Don Quixote. Cellist Jan Vogler plays the central role of Cervantes’s beloved Don, with other instruments representing various characters throughout including the brass taking a turn as a herd of sheep. The famous viola solo in Don Quixote features DSO’s very own, Meredith Kufchak, Principal Viola.

Luisi then leads Tchaikovsky’s emotionally charged Fifth Symphony, which transports listeners from dark despair to triumphant light. Like many of Tchaikovsky’s works, it finds him wrestling with fate and self-doubt and finding release in acceptance.


“Jan Vogler leads radiant performances of Tchaikovsky’s strong works”
