Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra - Mahler’s Vienna
We inaugurate our Vienna Alive series in grand style with the dazzling First Waltz Sequence from Richard Strauss’s ever popular opera Der Rosenkavalier. Strauss was a contemporary of Gustav Mahler, a remarkable composer who enlarged the symphony in every respect, from the size of the orchestra to the emotional intensity of the music. The TSO will be augmented by the finest players from the Australian Youth Orchestra so that the full power of Mahler’s Fifth can be realised. Australian soprano Cheryl Barker, who is without peer as an interpreter of Strauss, captures the beauty and radiance of Countess Madeleine, the heroine of Strauss’s enchanting final opera, Capriccio. Strauss was renowned for his magnificent vocal writing and in Capriccio his melodic lines surge, soar and touch the heart.
