Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra & Dueñas performs Lalo

On our final classical program of the season, the rhythms and harmonies of Spain infuse Lalo’s exciting work for solo violin and orchestra. The soloist on these concerts is the young Spanish violinist María Dueñas, winner of the Yehudi Menuhin Competition 2021. Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra, the first minute of which features prominently in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, is a lush, thrilling tone poem inspired by Friedrich Nietzchse’s book of the same name. The concert opens with a new fanfare by Wynton Marsalis, Herald, Holler and Halleujah!
