CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Friday, May 16, 2014 | 8 PM

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
The spirited Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of chief conductor Mariss Jansons, returns to Carnegie Hall to perform two works that highlight the destructive power of love: Strauss’s Don Juan, a score chronicling the notorious womanizer and his hedonistic audacity, and Berlioz’s orchestral tour-de-force Symphonie fantastique, a hallucinatory tale of suicide, murder, ecstasy, and despair drawn from an artist’s self-destructive passion for a beautiful woman.

The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
