Royal Northern Sinfonia

Strauss – Sextet from Capriccio
Strauss (arr. Brett Dean) – Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks
Strauss – Metamorphosen

Strauss’s music explores the whole sphere of human emotions. The famous Sextet from Capriccio begins as a ‘conversation piece’, then flowers into music of searing beauty. A witty tone poem Til Eulenspiegel (heard here in an inspired chamber arrangement by Brett Dean) portrays a loveable medieval rogue and folk hero who mercilessly lampoons the great and good. In stark contrast, the great wartime elegy Metamorphosen was composed in 1945 as a lament for all that had been lost during the physical and cultural devastation of Germany.
