Programme June 2008Day Workshop at Bishop Justus School

Richard Strauss Alpine Symphony

We ran a day’s workshop on Richard Strauss’s epic 'Alpine Symphony' at Bishop Justus School. Given its scale and complex scoring, this was not a work that we could ever afford to include in a concert performance, but this was a wonderful opportunity to play this Strauss masterpiece. We spent the day working on it with Adrian before an informal performance in the early evening, which was open to the public.

Adrian introduced the work at 5.50pm, followed by an informal performance at about 6.10pm (ending around 7pm).

The session was free, but donations were welcome; no tickets were issued.
