Daniel Harding conducts “Thus spoke Zarathustra”

This concert with Daniel Harding is pervaded by the themes of light and nature. Richard Strauss begins his Also sprach Zarathustra with the most famous sunrise in musical history. The Korean composer Unsuk Chin, on the other hand, sets the behaviour of light rays to music in her iridescent Rocaná. Ralph Vaughan Williams’s song cycle On Wenlock Edge (soloist: Andrew Staples) creates vivid tonal images.
