Information about the programme

Italy in May is always a good idea. The 22-year-old Strauss concurred: following Brahms’ advice, he travelled to Italy in April and May 1886, visiting Florence, Rome, Bologna, Naples and Capri. The four movements of his symphonic fantasy transport the listener to the “Campagna,” “Rome’s Ruins,” and the “Beaches of Sorrento,” before finally plunging into the lively “Neapolitan Folk Life” – a showpiece for the Neapolitan conductor Riccardo Muti, who has frequently performed it during the course of his career, including a performance with the BRSO forty years ago in 1984. With the inclusion of works by Haydn and Schubert as well as the participation of the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the maestro presents a programme that also features other companions with whom he has long cultivated a close relationship.
