No heroic season could possibly be complete without the most heroic piece of all: Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life) by Richard Strauss. This orchestral tour de force is one of the greatest and most difficult pieces in the entire repertoire. This grand finale will include Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, another piece celebrating the defeat of Napoleon, and the Piano Concerto No. 2 by Shostakovich, a Russian musical hero in his own right, featuring Moscow-born pianist Natasha Paremski, one of the piano world’s fastest-rising stars.
