The radical opening of Beethoven’s 1803 “Eroica” Symphony is so unlike anything that came before it, some say it is one of the earliest hallmarks of music’s Romantic Era. Strauss’ Metamorphosen, composed in the last days of the European theater of World War II, is an elegy to the passing of that same cultural era. Join Courtney Lewis and the Symphony for a visit to the genesis and twilight of German Romanticism.
