Richard Strauss famed Sunrise fanfare promises greatness with just five notes, summoning a sweeping tone poem like none other. The triumphant tour de force, based on the writings of Nietzsche and made even more famous by 2001: A Space Odyssey, musically navigates life, religion, science and more with bombastic brass, winding winds and soaring strings. Jeffrey Kahane shot to fame after winning the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition and brings his authority to Mozarts ornate and majestic Concerto. But first, Cesar Franck offers a cautionary tale with his symphonic poem, where dark hunting horns, church bells and frantic gallops leap right from the pages of its inspired ballad.
**The Saturday, January 30 performance will be presented as a WALLCAST concert, presented by Citi®, in SoundScape Park.**
