Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen (Metamorphoses) is a memorial to all those that perished in World War II.
Kevin Puts’ tone poem The Brightness of Light is inspired by the tender words and images revealed in the letters of the iconic American writer Georgia O’Keeffe to her husband and accomplished photographer Alfred Stieglitz. The impassioned multi-media journey paints a musical portrait of life in the American Southwest and features star soprano Renée Fleming.
The concert will feature Renée Fleming and Rod Gilfry, with video by Wendall Harrington. The DSO will be conducted by Fabio Luisi.
