Aureole [Dallas Premiere]

BEETHOVEN

Piano Concerto No. 5, "Emperor"

R. STRAUSS

An Alpine Symphony

Fabio Luisi opens the season with a program that scales the heights. Strauss’s massive Alpine Symphony features over 100 musicians (including celesta, organ and off-stage brass) and meteorological sound effects. Cliburn Medalist Beatrice Rana joins the DSO for the “Emperor” Concerto, a crowning achievement aptly named for its regal temperament. The concert begins with Augusta Read Thomas’s radiant Aureole in its Dallas premiere.

“Rana delivered a highly sensitive account, hands splashing across the keyboard with great delicacy.”
