C. M. von Weber: Concertino for Horn and Orchestra
H. Tomasi: Trumpet Concerto
R. Strauss: Thus Spake Zarathustra
In the portrayal of Nietzsche’s superhuman, embodied in Stanley Kubrick’s evolution scene in his legendary 2001: A Space Odyssey, a thousand times used and abused by the marketing industry, one cannot miss Strauss’ exquisite artistic thought. Unfathomability is guaranteed here.
Our soloist, equally brilliant with a trumpet and a French horn, also seems quite unreal.
