Concert Description

From its opening flourish, Strauss’ Don Juan takes you on the legendary lover’s adventures, until he ultimately faces the consequences of his promiscuity. The 24-year-old Strauss rose to international fame with this work, but didn’t receive the approval of one of his early idols, the 19th Century master Johannes Brahms. To Brahms the new sound was pure indulgence, and honored the genius of past greats with a more traditional style embodied in his Second Symphony.
