Richard Strauss: Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Violin Concerto No.3 in G, K.216
Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition orch. Ravel
This afternoon's concert opens with one of Strauss's most sparkling miniatures.
'Till Eulenspiegel' depicts the 'merry pranks' of its eponymous hero, a German peasant who flirts, teases, pokes fun at the clergy and rides his horse through a marketplace.
It is paired with Ravel's equally pictorial orchestration of Mussorgsky's musical walk through an art gallery, 'Pictures at an Exhibition'.Performers
