Marin Alsop, conductor
Ah, yes, you know this music. Music that stops you in your tracks and tells you something momentous is underway. This Off the Cuff program explores Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra, widely recognized by modern-day audiences thanks to Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey and as the crowd-pumping, “sun-rising” fanfare music at college football games. But, as Marin Alsop will divulge, there’s more than meets the ear.
BSO OFF THE CUFF Program:
||Also Sprach Zarathustra
This performance will end at approximately 9:45PM.
