Did you know?

Brahms' Double Concerto was written in part as a peace offering to the composer's friend, violinist Joseph Joachim. The two musicians suffered a four-year rift in their friendship after Brahms' took the side of Joachim's wife in Joachim's divorce proceedings.

Till Eulenspiegel is one of the most colourful figures in German folklore; a rogue, prankster and impudent mocker of authority. Strauss' musical portrait of the mythical figure was largely responsible for spreading the legend of the trickster.

Asher Fisch has built WASO into a formidable Mahler orchestra, and now he returns to his powerful First Symphony. Opening with themes of nature, this audacious work gathers the musical forces of a huge orchestra, building to a suspenseful and grand finish.
