As an adventurous young lad, the composer Richard Strauss lost his way climbing up one of the Alps. Later, at the height of his compositional powers, he captured that experience in a piece of symphonic music that details eleven hours, dawn to nightfall, of a treacherous climb.

FWSO Principal Guest Conductor Kevin John Edusei will open the concert with Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni, which pivots from high melodrama to a more comic tone, and Sinfonietta, Op. 23, a rarely heard modernist treat by Austrian composer Alexander Zemlinsky. The concert also includes R. Strauss' Eine Alpensinfonie, Op. 64.
