Josep Pons captivates us with the mastery of  Richard Strauss

At the beginning of his career, Richard Strauss devoted himself to the tone poem, a single-movement musical genre inspired by philosophical and literary ideals. An absolute orchestral master, Strauss drew inspiration from a character in German picaresque literature for Till Eulenspiegel, while Death and transfiguration is the musical translation of a poem by Alexander Ritter on the death of an artist. The concert includes Strauss’s final work, his Four Last Songs, written in 1948 using texts by Hermann Hesse and Joseph von Eichendorff. The songs will be sung by the soprano Jacquelyn Wagner.

Tickets on sale from June 2017.
