R Strauss (arr Jay Friedman) An Alpine Symphony

Head of Brass Amos Miller directs the RCM Brass Ensemble in an arrangement of Richard Strauss’ epic journey through the mountains: An Alpine Symphony.

In this monumental tone poem, Strauss portrays 24 hours in the Alps with a depiction of nature in all its beauty and terror: forests, streams and meadows give way to giddying climbs and treacherous storms before peace is restored at last.

Embark on this musical quest with the RCM’s intrepid brass musicians in what is sure to be a thrilling performance.
