- Richard Strauss Eine Alpensinfonie
Edo de Waart is honorary conductor of the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, where he says he had his finest years. He conducts one of his favorite works: Strauss' monumental Eine Alpensinfonie.
Edo de Waart conducting Strauss
'A piece in which I personally take great pleasure,' says maestro Edo de Waart about Strauss's Eine Alpensinfonie. Today he leads the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in this majestic symphonic poem. Strauss describes a day in the Alps, 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 radiant sun.
