Wagner, Strauss & Chausson
We’re looking at romance differently this February with works from the late 19th century. Strauss’ ode to one of the most notorious philanderers, Don Juan, is just as adventurous in its storytelling as it is in execution for the orchestra, with blazing technique meeting soaring melodies across the ensemble. New to Omaha, violinist Angelo Xiang Yu, “unfazed by every challenge […] a tone of absolute purity and intense beauty” (The Spokesman), makes his debut with Chausson’s exquisite Poème. The “Prelude und Liebestod” from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, an epic filled with magic, betrayal, and insurmountable love, depicts the protagonists finally united but sadly in death. The build to the conclusion will leave you absolutely breathless.
