Strauss's Symphonia Domestica
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
You might call Strauss's last tone poem "A Day in the Life of the King of Sound Painting" — charming, humorous portraits of family life. Scored for an enormous orchestra, Symphonia domestica depicts bath-time for baby, voluptuous conjugal love, even a family squabble and reconciliation, and more. Jörg Widmann's Babylon Suite suggests an out-of-joint world — perhaps not unlike ours today.
