St. Louis Symphony Extra - January 14, 2012
The St. Louis Symphony continues its 2011-2012 season this weekend, and you can be right there with them from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14.
On select Saturday evenings, St. Louis Public Radio broadcasts the Symphony's performance over the air, bringing you a live classical music experience wherever you are.
This is what's in store for you this Saturday:
DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 7
CRUMB A Haunted Landscape
R. STRAUSS Four Last Songs
David Robertson will conduct the Symphony in their performance, which will also feature St. Louis hometown star soprano Christine Brewer.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch declares that “there is no one today who sings Richard Strauss’ soprano roles better than Christine Brewer – period.” During this performance you'll hear the St. Louis phenomenon performing Strauss’ stirring Four Last Songs, his final complete work (and a translation is provided for you, too, below)!
You can follow along with the broadcast yourself with this version of the same program symphony-goers have in the seats at Powell Hall. (below text translations)
Happy listening at 90.7 FM on air or online here! You can also follow along with our host, Robert Peterson, as he live tweets the broadcasts at @RobertPeterson3. Use the hashtag #slsoLIVE to chat about the broadcast as it's happening and talk with other Symphony broadcast listeners before and after the performance.
