Show Details

Louisville Orchestra
Don Quixote + Other Journeys


Featuring LO principal cellist Nicholas finch as the intrepid Don, Strauss’ virtuoso piece for orchestra is one of his most profound works.  Equally comic and philosophical, the hero of this fairy-tale draws us into our own deepest emotions. Plus, British composer Anna Clyne writes of spiritual and creative “turbulence” as her Night Ferry travels through winds and waves in a vivid journey.

FELIX MENDELSSOHN:  The Hebrides (11/23 only)
ANNA CLYNE:  Night Ferry
RICHARD STRAUSS:  Don Quixote

Vinay Parameswaran, guest conductor
