‎“Here the experience of the man and the artist converge”, is how Richard Strauss describes ‎his work Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life), an immense, climactic and extremely demanding ‎autobiographical symphonic poem. One of the greatest symphonic musical creations of all ‎time.‎

Program

The programme concludes with another piece from the same composer and the latest work ‎from Hungarian composer Peter Eötvös, with his intense work written with the hope of ‎making the world a better place. In Frankfurt, exactly 120 years ago, with an orchestra of ‎more than 100 musicians, Strauss enjoyed considerable success with this work, demanding ‎for both orchestra and conductor, which depicts the different stages of life. When Strauss ‎reflected on death and beyond, he did so in the form of a tone poem, “Death and ‎Transfiguration”, or resurrection, or reincarnation or whatever follows, seen for their beauty. ‎The final work by Peter Eötvös is a symphonic memorial for the many refugees who have ‎drowned in the Mediterranean. The work does however express rays of hope through this ‎highly topical and emotional music that desires to help make the world a fairer place.‎
