BBCSSO - Mozart and Strauss

Live broadcast 17 November 2011 BBC Radio 3.

Live from City Halls, Glasgow

Presented by Donald Macleod

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's Chief Conductor, Donald Runnicles, is renowned for his interpretation of Strauss Operas, and here he presents his choice selection of highlights from Strauss's lusciously late-romantic and richly-orchestrated score from his 1911 blockbuster Der Rosenkavalier. This romantic comedy follows the falling in love of debutant Sophie and the young Count Octavian. At the start of the story however Octavian is the lover of the much older and more sophisticated Marschallin and the opera is as much about the Marschallin coming to terms with the fact she will lose Octavian to the younger woman. Strauss expresses the love triangle in some of the most poignant and beautiful music in the whole of opera and in tonight's performance Donald Runnicles conducts an international cast of star singers in the principal roles. The work is set in mid-18th century Vienna and in the first half of the concert the young Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang plays the perfect Viennese companion piece in Mozart's A major Violin Concerto, known as the 'Turkish'.
