About the Event
Enjoy the Mariinsky Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev in the stunning Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.
Strauss' 'hero's life' is a psychogram. His actual theme is: the artist's struggle against self-doubt. The self-confident composer confessed to these only in his music. Their magic seems only to wait to be unleashed by the virtuoso Mariinsky Orchestra.
- Strauss, Richard Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life), Op. 40
