Eine Alpensinfonie: Richard Strauss\u2019s breathtaking mountain hike conducted by Fabio Luisi

Under the direction of the leading conductor Fabio Luisi, the Concertgebouworkest is performing an essential masterpiece, Richard Strauss’s Eine Alpensinfonie.
Strauss’s musical inventiveness knows no limits.
Richard Strauss could use the orchestra to depict absolutely anything. In fact, he believed he could turn a glass of beer into music so precisely that anyone could correctly identify the brand. A memory of a mountain hike he made as a child served as the inspiration for Eine Alpensinfonie.
This trek through the Alps as portrayed by the music begins at dawn. As the sun rises, we toil upwards. We enter a forest, walk along a stream and come across a waterfall. Flowery meadows, a glacier, moments of danger, mist, the view from the mountaintop, and a thunderstorm all follow… Strauss’s musical inventiveness in depicting all these events knows no limits. Even for those not familiar with the programme, this is breathtaking orchestral music.
