About this performance

French conductor Fabien Gabel leads the MSO through a program dedicated to the principal forces of nature: death and desire.

  • Richard Strauss dealt directly with both themes, in his tone poem Don Juan. Strauss’ version sees the title character seduce scores of women as he searches for femininity’s ideal. When he can’t find it, he wills death to come to him. The piece conjures all the swagger and mortification that this scenario suggests, with some magisterial parts for the horns and beautifully sensual woodwinds.
  • To complete this meditation is Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, played by talented German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott. Dedicated in part to the composer’s dying sister-in-law, Dvořák’s Cello Concerto is a piece brimming with yearning and the tenderness that accompanies impending loss.

Duration: approx. 65 minutes, no interval
