STRAUSS: Thus Spoke Zarathustra, TrV 176, Op. 30

Interpreters and guest artists

Kazushi Ono, conductor
Frank Peter Zimmermann, violin

Zimmermann, a star in the world of violin, brings us two unusual works, full of virtuosity, but especially delicacy, sweetness: two little gems brimming with sensitivity. And, by contrast, the most spectacular symphonic poem of Romanticism - energy in its purest state.

Program

It’s an honour to have Frank Peter Zimmermann back with us again, one of the few virtuosos who can perform a work by Bach followed by one of Schumann in the same concert. After the porcelain- delicate music comes a second part with steel music: the impressive Zarathustra, by Richard Strauss. When Stanley Kubrick decided to use this music at the start of his film 2001: A Space Odyssey, he would never have thought that it would contribute so definitively to Strauss’ work becoming one of the most popular scores of symphonic programmes. When we hear the first bars, foremost in our minds is the Sun illuminating the land and the apes surrounding the mysterious monolith.
