R. STRAUSS | Festliches Präludium
KORNGOLD | Violin Concerto
R. STRAUSS | An Alpine Symphony (with images by Tobias Melle)
Richard Strauss once boasted that he could depict even a knife and fork in music, so when he paints the full majesty of the Alps, the results are truly spectacular! First, the “ravishing” Alena Baeva plays the luscious Violin Concerto by Korngold – the Viennese genius who made it big in Hollywood. And then Lio Kuokman takes a supersized HK Phil on an audio-visual mountain journey: waterfalls, glaciers and breathtaking views, all without leaving your seat!
Orchestral performance with screen projection. The concert runs approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with an intermission.
Some seats may have restricted sightline to the main screen. Supplementary screens are provided on two sides of the stage. Please refer to the seating plan shown when purchasing tickets.
