Edo de Waart conducts Strauss' Eine Alpensinfonie


Max Bruch First Violin Concerto
Ludwig van Beethoven Fourth Symphony

Edo de Waart leads one of his favourite works: Strauss' monumental Eine Alpensinfonie. The Radio Philharmonic Orchestra also plays Diepenbrock's The Birds, a classical drama full of humour.

A piece that I personally enjoy very much,' says maestro Edo de Waart about Strauss' Eine Alpensinfonie. Today he leads the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in this majestic symphonic poem. Strauss describes a day in the Alps, climbing from shortly before sunrise until nightfall. Strauss passionately loved the landscape around Munich,' says De Waart. And so all the elements of that landscape recur: from green mountain pastures to thickets. From rising mist to shining sun.

Alphons Diepenbrock lets the animals have their say in his overture De vogels (The birds). He wrote this sparkling work for the pupils of the grammar school where he taught Latin and Greek. It is therefore based on a classic comedy in which the birds make plans to dominate both people and gods.
