This event is over.

Spring. September. Going to sleep. At sunset. Richard Strauss’s Four Last Songs, written at the very end of his life, are songs of soaring beauty suffused with calm and acceptance. Veteran Finnish conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste and distinguished soprano Evelina Dobračeva take us on this journey of twilight serenity, bookended by the divine Act 1 prelude from Wagner’s Lohengrin and Sibelius’s supreme paean to nature’s majesty.
