Lauded by The New York Times for both his “uncanny delicacy” and “gnashing power,” Kirill Gerstein returns to Aspen for Strauss’s Burleske. Full of the boundless energy of a twenty-one-year-old who did not know the meaning of “impossible,” the work is a playful synthesis of forms and styles.
Near the end of his life, Smetana triumphed over deafness and insanity to compose a brilliant paean to his homeland. Má vlast celebrates the land and history of Bohemia, and includes the famous Moldau movement, a depiction of the famous river as it swells and courses through the countryside, and eventually flows off into the distance.
