In his orchestral tone poem Death and Transfiguration, Strauss tells the tale of a dying man reflecting back on his life, his struggles, and his ambitions. Ultimately, as the composer tells us, “the soul leaves the body in order to find gloriously achieved in everlasting space those things that could not be fulfilled here below.”

Violinist Julian Rachlin joins the DSO for Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto, surprising from its bold opening solo to its brash and percussive conclusion.
