Belief and Beyond Belief: Science
Haydn Symphony No. 22 (The Philosopher)
Poulenc Organ Concerto
R Strauss Also sprach Zarathustra
Andrés Orozco-Estrada conductor
James O’Donnell organ
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Richard Strauss didn’t do anything by halves. So when he sets out to tell the entire story of humanity in music, the results are spectacular. But if you only know Also sprach Zarathustra – or Ligeti’s visionary Atmosphères – from 2001: A Space Odyssey, you’re in for a thrilling surprise. Andrés Orozco-Estrada is here to tell the full story, plus a wonderfully enjoyable bit of background: Haydn’s ‘Philosopher’ Symphony – a firecracker on a slow fuse – and Poulenc’s roof-raising Organ Concerto. Soloist James O’Donnell will give the Royal Festival Hall’s famous organ the ride of its life.
