Life, Death and the Afterlife—in Reverse
Bruce Hangen, conductor
Kerry Deal, soprano
The Boston Conservatory Orchestra presents a collection of influnetial works by three of history's greatest composers: Tchaikovsky’s penultimate Symphony No. 5 is a masterwork of orchestral writing, Strauss’ songs are to die for and Theofanidis’ work is influenced by the Buddhist concept of the after-life. The Strauss song cycle features faculty guest artist Kerry Deal (soprano), whose most recent appearance with the Orchestra was in Bernstein’s “Kaddish” Symphony.
