ESO: German Favorites

Michelle Areyzaga returns to the Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling, in Richard Strauss’ final work, his tribute to the soprano voice the Four Last Songs.

Brahms’ Third Symphony is a cornerstone of the concert repertoire, with an opening theme expressing his personal motto “free but happy” and an instantly memorable folksong-like third movement.

Wagner’s Overture to Tannhäuser will provide a sonorous and brassy conclusion to this program of favorites by German composers.
