Orchestra of Opera North: Strauss & Rachmaninov

Orchestra of Opera North: Strauss & Rachmaninov


Strauss – Also Sprach Zarathustra Listen []
Rachmaninov – Vocalise Listen []
Rachmaninov – Symphony No 3 Listen []

From a blazing fanfare for a new dawn to heart-stoppingly romantic melodies...

Familiar to many from the unforgettable opening of Kubrick’s epic sci-fi _2001: A Space Odyssey_, Richard Strauss’ gigantic tone poem _Thus Spake Zarathustra_ delves deep into the question of humanity’s place in the universe.

Rachmaninov’s tender wordless song _Vocalise_ and his Symphony No. 3 feature more indelible melodies, full of nostalgic melancholy.

Free pre-concert talk at 6.45pm by Steve Muir.
