Ravel, Rachmaninoff & Strauss

Ravel, Rachmaninoff & Strauss

Presented by Utah Symphony at Abravanel Hall

Strauss’ Suite from Der Rosenkavalier vividly portrays key moments from the opera’s witty and wise tale of a love triangle; and the symphony’s own Principal Clarinet Tad Calcara and Principal Bassoon Lori Wike shine in the Duet Concertino, for which Strauss imagined a dance between an unlikely couple—a bear and a princess. Ravel’s La valse depicts a more elegant dance, with the waltzers gradually becoming illuminated as the ballroom brightens, while Rachmaninoff’s The Isle of the Dead is dark and chilling, inspired by Arnold Böcklin’s painting of a desolate rocky island. Chief Conductor of the Munich Symphony Orchestra Kevin John Edusei, commanding and elegant on the podium, leads this program featuring three of Europe’s greatest composers.
