Chicago Phil's Romantic Serenade: Brahms, Strauss, Berlioz
The Chicago Philharmonic's season devoted to rapturous romance rolls along with Joel Smirnoff at the conductor's podium and violinist David Perry as the esteemed soloist. Perry, who also serves as the orchestra's concertmaster, steps into the spotlight for French composer Hector Berlioz's Opus 8, Rêverie and Caprice. The tragic emotional outpouring of Richard Strauss' Metamorphosen, a work for 23 solo strings, is said to have been composed as an elegy to German culture at the end of World War II. Johannes Brahms' Second Serenade for Orchestra provides the capper to this concert, which also includes a discussion by Northwestern musicology professor Jesse Rosenberg on the Romantic Era in music and culture.
