  • Overview
    Mendelssohn “Scottish” Symphony with Strauss’ Metamorphosen – streaming On Demand Saturday, January 9 at 12 PM noon through February 7.The theme for this concert very well could be “music inspired from ruins.” Hear the Utah Symphony perform works that reflect the tragedy of destruction and the triumph of music over grief and pain.Highlights Include:Johann Strauss’ Metamorphosen was written to mourn the destruction in Munich, including that of many opera houses in Europe, due to bombing during the final days of World War II. He wrote that the burning of the Munich Hoftheatre “was the greatest catastrophe that has ever been brought into [his] life.”German composer Felix Mendelssohn was inspired by a visit to the rugged ruins of Holyrood Scotland in 1829 to compose the “Scottish” Symphony. Mendelssohn’s work reflects a more triumphant feel – suggesting victory over hostility.Israeli conductor Asher Fisch, Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, makes his Utah Symphony debut. Fisch is celebrated for his interpretative command of core German repertoire of the Romantic and post-Romantic eras.
