Strauss: Eine Alpensinfonie / Wit, Staatskapelle Weimar

Album Summary

>Strauss, Richard : Eine Alpensinfonie, Op. 64
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

An Alpine Symphony, the last of Richard Strauss' symphonic poems, drew its inspiration from a youthful climbing expedition in the Alps, using Nietzche's idea of liberation through Nature. Taking the listener on an epic journey, beginning at night, through sunrise and finishing at sunset, it evokes the varying moods of the mountains, not least the terrifying dangers they represent. This piece is scored for a very large orchestra, including multiple woodwind and brass, a huge percussion battery, organ, wind and thunder machines.
