Description

Led by conductor Peter Oundjian, the Atlanta Symphony serves up a feast of orchestral indulgence. First, the "utterly astounding" (The Piano Files) Benjamin Grosvenor performs Johannes Brahms's barnstorming Piano Concerto No. 1. The performance concludes with Strauss' mind-blowing Also sprach Zarathustra. Used as the opening theme in 2001: A Space Odyssey, Strauss' tone poem was written "to convey in music an idea of the evolution of the human race from its origin…," and is perfectly at home in this epic cinematic context.
