SEASON 02 concludes with a bold hommage to Leonard Bernstein and two composers whose work he championed during his lifetime. Strauss's Metamorphosen, an epic-scale symphonic work inspired by Beethoven's Eroica Symphony, is here performed in a thrilling arrangement for seven string players. The season concludes with Beethoven's equally epic String Quintet, nicknamed the "Storm Quintet".
