Tchaikovsky: “Romeo and Juliet” Overture – Fantasy
Tchaikovsky: “Francesca da Rimini,” op. 32
R. Strauss: “Don Juan,” TrV 156, op. 20Z
R. Strauss: “Der Rosenkavalier,” TrV 227, op. 59: Suite
The drama and ecstasy of love reveals itself through four different stories musically told by Tchaikovsky and Strauss: the timeless love of Romeo and Juliet; the classic casanova, Don Juan; the tragic tale of Francesca da Rimini; and the comic, yet bittersweet, opera of Der Rosenkavalier.
