Bychkov Conducts “An Alpine Symphony”
New York Philharmonic
About An Alpine Symphony
Strauss’s “An Alpine Symphony” is an orchestral extravaganza requiring an enormous cast of 125 musicians, many playing on wind and thunder machines, cow bells, and bird calls, plus 16 off-stage brass players! Join the composer on his daylong hike, listening for a brilliant sunrise, the arduous ascent, an Alpine pasture, and a ferocious storm. Plus Berio’s Sinfonia with Grammy-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth.
2hr; incl. intermission
