Program

If in October we heard the Metamorphosen as an elegy at the end of a tragic period of history, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is much more than a symphonic poem of youth brimming with orchestral virtuosity. The musical representation of the Nietzschean superman glides throughout the composer's creative journey in the same way as in the political sphere during this period, the historical realisation of the construction of idols was rehearsed, with disastrous consequences.

Strauss, as a hero, employs every imaginable orchestral resource to widen the threshold of the possible and to create an instrument for man’s unstoppable progress. Four Last Songs is the epilogue to a stage in history and a serene acceptance of the end of life.
