RSNO Season Opener: Strauss & Mahler One

7:30pm, Friday 04 October 2019

Thomas Søndergård       Conductor
Karen Cargill                   Mezzo-Soprano

R Strauss                         Don Juan
Berg                                 Seven Early Songs
Mahler                             Symphony No1 Titan

A flurry of strings, a blast of trumpets: Richard Strauss’ Don Juan opens with one of the most dramatic flourishes in musical history. Gustav Mahler took a different approach and began his youthful First Symphony with the creation of the world itself. But they both knew how to make an orchestra sound sensational, and along with Berg’s seven lush songs – sung by the great Scottish mezzo Karen Cargill – Thomas Søndergård will make this an ear-tingling, heart-pounding start to our new Season.
