CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS
Saturday, April 12, 2014 | 8 PM
Munich Philharmonic Orchestra
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Karita Mattila, a soprano who can “spin a Straussian melodic line with sumptuous lyricism” (The New York Times), joins Maestro Lorin Maazel and the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra to delve into some of the most meltingly romantic music Richard Strauss ever wrote, the Four Last Songs. Also on the program are the composer’s heroic tone poem Ein Heldenleben and his orchestral suite from Der Rosenkavalier.
