A Trip to Vienna: Life Sciences Orchestra concert

Poster Poster
Ann Arbor will feel a little like Vienna as the U-M Life Sciences Orchestra takes the stage of Hill Auditorium for a free concert of works written and arranged by Vienna-based composers. The LSO and music director Chelsea Gallo, will transport their audience to the Austrian capital through works by both Richard and Johann Strauss, and a piece by Johannes Brahms arranged by Arnold Schoenberg. The LSO brings together medical, health and science faculty, staff, students and alumni from across the university.
No tickets are required and donations will be accepted.

The concert will begin with “Macbeth,” one of the first tone poems written by Richard Strauss, evoking the dramatic tale of the Scottish king. Johann Strauss, Jr. – a fellow Viennese but not related to Richard – will be represented on the program with his Kaiser-Walzer, much better known in English as the Emperor Waltz. LSO assistant conductor Régulo Stabilito will conduct.

The concert’s second half features a unique work: Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25, but not the original written in 1861 for violin, viola, cello and piano. Rather, the LSO will play the 1937 arrangement for full orchestra, without piano.
