R. Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life)

This week we’re looking at the theme of heroism in music. We invite you to stream our performance of R. Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben (“A Hero’s Life”), a work in six movements which the composer (tongue planted firmly in cheek) said features “lots of horns—which is always a measure of heroism.” Read the concert notes, written by former TŌN violinist Sophia Bernitz, by clicking here.
