Music Director Leon Botstein to Honor Richard Strauss' 150th Anniversary at ASO Opening Celebration, 10/15Music Director Leon Botstein to Honor Richard Strauss' 150th Anniversary at ASO Opening Celebration, 10/15
by BWW News Desk - Sep 24, 2014

Few marriages in classical music have been more mused upon than that of Richard and Pauline Strauss. Despite her disappointment with her own musical career, and her famously sharp-tongued barbs that were frequently directed at Strauss himself and remarked upon by the likes of Thomas Beecham and Alma Mahler, the marriage not only endured but was a rock for them both. At Strauss's funeral, Pauline fell to her knees in racking cries. With all the many celebrations of Strauss's 150th anniversary in 2014, ASO music director Leon Botstein shines a light upon this central theme in the composer's life, and in his music. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Oct 7, 2014

Music Director Leon Botstein opens the ASO's 53rd season by shining a light on one of the most fascinating partnerships in classical music: the marriage of Richard and Pauline Strauss. Despite the failure of Pauline's own musical career and the famously sharp-tongued barbs she often directed at Strauss himself, the marriage endured and Strauss frequently used their relationship as inspiration for his music. The works on this concert bring together rarely-heard music from Intermezzo, the opera Strauss wrote when Pauline accused him of adultery; the NY debut of Mark Bebbington in Parergon, a piano concerto portraying the illness of the couple's son; and Symphonia Domestica, representing 24 hours in the life of the Strauss family at home.

Stephanie Blythe--who's at the Met these days singing Baba the Turk in Stravinsky's THE RAKE'S PROGRESS--“abhors labels.” That's why, despite a cavernous voice that has become even deeper with age and could easily be termed mezzo or contralto, she tells me to call her “a girl singer.” (more...)

It was 'out with the old, in with the new' for another of the Franco Zeffirelli productions that were once the Metropolitan Opera's bread and butter, designed for audiences to cheer for the scenery even when the cast might not have been top drawer. This time, the victims of changing times (and administrations) were the twin bill of Mascagni's CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA and Leoncavallo's PAGLIACCI. (more...)

While there is nothing wrong with seeing particular dancers perform well-known works with their respective companies repeatedly, it is quite refreshing to see some of these New York based dancers perform new works on a much smaller scale.
