After becoming deeply drawn to Liebestod (Love-Death) from Wagners Tristan and Isolde, Strauss composed his own musical exploration of what lies beyond life itself. Through stunning harmonies and masterful orchestration, Death and Transfiguration illustrates a mans physiological and psychological deterioration. In a similar vein, Kaija Saariaho completed HUSH, her self-proclaimed journey to silence, during her final months with terminal brain cancer. Dedicated to jazz trumpeter Veneri Pohjola, the concerto features the trumpet growling from its lowest register and gliding downward like a ghost amongst the orchestra. Susanna Mälkki takes the lead for the evening, conducting Schuberts chilling yet charming two-movement symphony, nicknamed the Unfinished.

Concerts in the Thursday 2 subscription series are generously supported by the Otis Booth Foundation.
