Video on demand: Strauss' Don Juan

GSOplayRecorded at Gothenburg Concert Hall: Stora Salen, Gothenburg, Sweden
Free to view

If you would like to hear one of the most beautiful oboe solos in orchestral music, don’t miss Richard Strauss Don Juan. A love scene is depicted in the middle of the piece that begins with a sweet and seductive oboe melody infused with both tenderness and erotic undertones.

The orchestral poem also depicts the more lascivious episodes of Don Juan’s adventures in love, in an incredible orchestral sound that is full of verve and action. No one is safe in Don Juan’s tragic and fruitless search for the ideal woman.

Filmed in January 2020.

Due to the corona pandemic, the concerts of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra are closed to the public in the up-coming weeks. However, with a strong commitment and belief in the uniting power of music, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra will be available to all music lovers on GSOplay. The concerts can be enjoyed for free for anyone on the web or through our app – wherever you are.

The ambition is to extend the range with new concerts available every tuesday and friday, culled from our rich archive with international artists such as Santtu-Matias Rouvali, Barbara Hannigan and Kent Nagano.
