ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Just how great is the Houston Symphony? You’ll find out in this program of lush, full-orchestra showpieces from the greatest symphonic poet of all time. To start, hear two of the most soul-stirring works ever written in Strauss’ poignant musings on life, death and transcendence. Then sparks fly and spirits soar as we feel the racing pulse of history’s most legendary ladies’ man and encounter a loveable trickster who always gets the last laugh.

Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
