- Cello Concerto
- R. Strauss
- Also sprach Zarathustra
- Urška Horvat
- David Danzmayr
Witness the piece that made Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey so iconic, plus Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, as Illinois Philharmonic’s David Danzmayr conducts the Trinity Laban Symphony Orchestra.
Composed in 1896, Also sprach Zarathustra is a tone poem based on Nietzsche’s controversial novel of the same name, which famously declared that ‘God is dead’. Now with the popularity of 2001: A Space Odyssey, the work has a new lease of life – symbolising scientific progress and human endeavour.
Finishing the programme, rising star Urška Horvat performs Dvořák’s last solo concerto following her winning performance in the Trinity Laban soloists’ competition this year.
