Strauss & Beethoven

Strauss & Beethoven

Tito Muñoz, conductor
Conrad Tao, piano
Maria Valdes, soprano

Tito Muñoz leads The Phoenix Symphony in two works by Richard Strauss, his witty tone poem Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, and his aptly-named Four Last Songs, a noble statement about a life well lived, featuring radiant soprano Maria Valdes as soloist. The dynamic pianist Conrad Tao joins the orchestra for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, a pinnacle of the repertoire as well as the final work for piano and orchestra that Beethoven performed personally. Opening the program is Christopher Cerrone’s The Age of Wire and String, a six-part orchestral suite that Cerrone composed especially for his good friend Tito Muñoz to premiere.

Concert Repertoire
Christopher Cerrone: The Age of Wire and String
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 4
R. Strauss: Four Last Songs (Sung in German)
R. Strauss: Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks
