Program Notes

Returning to SPAC alongside pianist JEREMY DENK and cellist STEVEN ISSERLIS is celebrated violinist JOSHUA BELL in a consummate performance of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto.  

The evening culminates with Strauss’s epic Ein Heldenleben—literally, “A Hero’s Life”—an extravagant, all-encompassing, semi-autobiographical tone poem that quotes from his own prodigious masterpieces.
