This wonderful program centers around the idea of transformation. With Richard Strauss’ incredible tone-poem Death & Transfiguration that looks back over the hero’s life and then culminates in his ascent, Wagner’s alternately earthly and celestial Lohengrin preludes, an exciting work by living female composer Missy Mazzoli about the Detroit skyline, and Tchaikovsky’s irresistible Sleeping Beauty Suite, this concert is certain to be a winner.
