Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture (Fingal's Cave)
Elgar Sea Pictures
Richard Strauss Eine Alpensinfonie (An Alpine Symphony)

Our popular Masterworks series continues in 2017 beginning with Felix Mendelssohn’s evocative Hebrides overture. Inspired by the stunning scenery of the Scottish Hebrides islands, this overture (also known as Fingal’s Cave) suggests crashing waves and the cavernous, watery depths of the ocean.

The profound beauty of the sea inspired Edward Elgar’s exquisite song cycle, Sea Pictures. Sung by Michelle DeYoung, whose lustrous mezzo-soprano voice has made her a star, her voice swims sweetly through the thrilling depths and brooding melodies of Elgar’s exquisite score.

Moving from sea to land, Richard Strauss’ epic Alpine Symphony outlines a day in the Bavarian Alps with a ferocious intensity. In the mountainous grandeur of this symphonic tone poem, you’ll need an expert guide. Maestro Edo de Waart, famed for the universality and profound humanity of his interpretations, leads us through a concert in awed contemplation of the Great Outdoors.
