Event Details

Jonathan Aasgaard, cello
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Vasily Petrenko, conductor

Programme:
Zemlinsky: Four Orchestral Pieces
Hindemith: Symphonic Metamorphosis of themes by Weber
Richard Strauss: Don Quixote

RLPO Note:
Poor old Don Quixote has lost it, and wearing rusty armour, he mounts his horse and rides out on the daftest possible quest. No-one tells a musical joke quite like Richard Strauss, and today Vasily Petrenko conjures up sorcerers, knights, windmills and a whole flock of bleating sheep. He’s matched it with Hindemith’s uproarious Symphonic Metamorphosis, which uses four of our famous church bells, and the music of the Viennese romantic master Alexander von Zemlinsky. If you heard The Mermaid in May 2019, and you like Mahler, then you’ll love this next instalment, drawn from his operas.
