The MPO greets Christmas with a chamber orchestra concert presenting sweet melodies. Dvořák’s Serenade reflects the happiness pervading his life at the time whereas Strauss’s work, composed at the age of 13, anticipates the lyrical elements found in his more mature works.

Siegfried Idyll, Wagner’s intimate tone poem, celebrates the composer’s love for his wife.
