BSO season finale May 30 & 31 marks 150th anniversary of the birth of Richard Strauss

The Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Richard Strauss in performances of two of his works, the Concerto for Horn No. 1 and Feierlicher Einzug. The first work is likely the result of growing up with a famous horn player at home, his father, and the latter work was composed in 1909 for ceremonial events held by the Knights of St. John. Debussy’s beautiful masterpiece L’aprés-midi d’un faune and Wagner’s extract from Tristan und Isolde will hold you spellbound with their innovative harmonies and rich orchestral tapestry. Bringing the season to a rousing conclusion is Gershwin’s jazzy Piano Concerto in F major. The program features Anne-Marie Cherry (horn) and Dr. Johan Botes (piano). Read more.
