Moved to tears

»Strauss is one of my favourites. He is one of those composers who can move the audience to tears. And I see perfect dramaturgy in his music as well as this emotionality. He knows exactly how to build up tension and direct it.« So it’s no coincidence that Andris Nelsons is conducting the »Alpine Symphony« as the climax of a four-part Strauss cycle. The composer describes here a mountain hike that he actually experienced: Early one morning, before daylight, he sets off to climb the Heimgarten, a peak in the foothills of the Alps; he reaches the summit, then gets caught in a heavy thunderstorm, and is not able to seek shelter at a farm until the evening.
