Christian Thielemann, an outstanding interpreter of Strauss, dedicates an entire concert to the composer – with two discoveries and a crowd pleaser. The evening opens with the extremely charming Sonatina for 16 Winds No. 1, followed by the equally sonorous and expressive Three Hymns, op. 71 (soloist: Anja Kampe). The finale of the concert is an instrumental suite from Strauss’s bittersweet opera Der Rosenkavalier: dramatic, melancholic, humorous but always overwhelmingly beautiful.
