A Concertmaster’s Life
Glenn Dicterow comes full circle during his farewell season as the Phil’s longest-serving Concertmaster: in December he’ll be spotlighted in solos from Richard Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life), one of the first pieces he performed with the Orchestra, on Live From Lincoln Center.
“That’s one way to get one’s feet wet: trial by fire. Strauss must have hated violinists because he wrote the most challenging, impossibly hard licks for the violin. It ends with one of the most heavenly dialogues that Strauss ever wrote for solo violin and horn.”

Le Bourgeois gentilhomme

Strauss’s Le Bourgeois gentilhomme, a suite of tongue-in-cheek incidental music based on Molière’s 17th-century theatrical masterpiece. Come hear this and a variety of works conducted by Andrey Boreyko on a program that also features guest soloist Branford Marsalis on alto saxophone, February 16–19.
