Rossini L’italiana in Algeri Overture
Strauss Oboe Concerto in D Major
Mozart Symphony No. 39 in E Major K543
Frank Rosenwein, Principal Oboe of The Cleveland Orchestra, headlines this concert performing Richard Strauss’ lyrical Oboe Concerto, composed during the hopeful days immediately after the end of World War II. Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart frames the program — The Magic Flute Overture, celebrating the power of music and love to overcome adversity, and the Symphony No. 39, one of his most richly scored creations, described by one commentator as “the most purely joyous utterance in musical literature.”
