Ravel Boléro & Strauss A Hero’s Life conducted by Brett Mitchell


Driving percussion propels this energetic program led by Music Director Brett Mitchell. Ravel’s rhythmic Boléro, features many of our musicians in starring roles, including the ever-present snare drum which continues unabated throughout as the orchestra gradually builds in sound to an exultant conclusion. Christopher TheofanidisDrum Circles highlights a virtuosic dialogue between seven percussionists and the orchestra, creating a spatially, colorful rhythmic experience. Strauss’ not-so-subtly autobiographical Ein Heldenleben is laid out in six beautifully interconnected sections, each clearly defined in sound while telling the courageous story of its virtuous hero — Richard Strauss himself — in a bombastic finale to a thrilling performance.

The length of this performance is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes. This includes one 20-minute intermission.
