Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40
Richard Strauss is particularly renowned for his epic tone poems, and none are more epic than his Ein Heldenleben, a musical depiction of the life and works of a hero which is typically interpreted as being autobiographical in nature.

Under the direction of Dutch-Maltese conductor Lawrence Renes, the orchestra will also be joined by Latvian pianist Inese Klotiņa for a performance of Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto, written when he was just eighteen.
