Søndergård Conducts Strauss and Mozart

New! Saturday 7 p.m. start time

Thu Sep 21 — Sat Sep 23, 2023

Orchestra Hall

~2 hours, including intermission

There was immediate and powerful chemistry when Thomas Søndergård and the Minnesota Orchestra first performed the music of Richard Strauss together in 2021. Now, the Orchestra and its new music director present a program bookended by works from a composer whose music helped ignite this special partnership. The 2023–24 season leaps into action with Strauss’ heroic Don Juan and epic Alpine Symphony. At the center of the program, Principal Oboe Nathan Hughes makes his solo debut playing Mozart’s Oboe Concerto.
