Bubbly and vivacious, Brahms’ cheery Symphony No. 2 is the music you’ll want to try and capture in a bottle for a rainy day! Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration is a powerful tone poem exploring the ultimate mystery of what lies beyond earthly existence, elegantly moving from the trials of mortality to the lightness and peace of heavenly immortality. Mathilde Wantenaar’s Prélude à une nuit américaine (“Prelude to an American night”) was envisioned as “an unabashed grand romantic gesture” with jazzy harmonies and dancing rhythms that create its “American touch.”
