Strauss and Mozart in Indianapolis

See also

It would seem that music director, Krystof Urbanski, has fallen in love with Strauss. For the second consecutive week the Indianapolis Symphony will be playing a classic Strauss composition, this week it will be both Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks. Opening with Don Juan, this classic of the orchestral repertoire is always a treat to experience live. Written in 1888 when Richard Strauss was only twenty-four years old, this captivating tone poem is a fabulous composition and will be easily enjoyed by all. The next two pieces on this program will feature Stefan Jackiw, an American classical violinist. Having performed with orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic and the Chicago Symphony, Jackiw will perform Beethoven’s Romance No. 2 in F Major and Mozart’s Concerto No. 5 in A Major. Both amazing classical period pieces are great additions to the middle segment of the program. Concluding the concert will be Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks. A very engaging piece for any audience, this is a fabulous chance to catch some Strauss if you missed the Alpine Symphony last weekend. With shows at 8:00 PM on 2/7 and 2/8, I highly recommend this program for listeners of all ages.
