Program:
WAGNER :  Prelude to Act 1 of Tristan und Isolde
STRAUSS:  Four Last Songs
MOZART:  Requiem (Levin edition)

On this special Easter-season program, you’ll hear how two great composers concluded their careers and bid farewell to earthly life. In the Requiem that 35-year-old Mozart left unfinished, he offered a compelling mixture of beauty, anguish, majesty, and drama. At 84, Richard Strauss looked back over a long, brilliant career in the achingly nostalgic Four Last Songs.
