Fidor Yakimenko: Nocturne for Strings (5 min)
Richard Strauss: Don Juan (17 min)
There are a lot of emotions at this mid-day concert. Yakimenko’s Nocturne for Strings is a hauntingly beautiful and introspective piece, while Strauss’s Don Juan tells a story of love and loss with blazing virtuosity and luminous melody that ends with an unforgettable finale.
During this bite-sized concert, you’ll learn about the works being performed, enjoy a taste of orchestral music, and have your curiosity quenched when the conductor answers questions from the audience.
