Program Notes

Description

Carlos Kalmar conducts Debussy's roiling hommage to the sea La mer, a masterstroke of orchestral color. And French oboist Françiox Leleux performs Richard Strauss's autumnal Oboe Concerto, written for a U.S. soldier (and Philadelphia Orchestra musician) at the close of World War II. The program opens with an orchestral extract from John Adams' watershed opera Nixon in China
