Rapture is the hallmark of a concert that highlights music’s unique power to carry us away. The first half features Barber’s first symphonic venture, a creative outpouring teeming with drama and lyrical flourish. Composed in the final year of his life, Strauss’ introspective, meditative farewell to the worldly realm is some of the most moving music ever written, and the culmination of his lifelong love affair with the soprano voice.
