2:30 PM - 4:30 PM Curtis Symphony Orchestra: Performance
Juanjo Mena, conductor
Adams: Short Ride in a Fast Machine
Strauss: Don Quixote, TrV 184, Op. 35
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique, Op. 14

Juanjo Mena, conductor
Carlos Ágreda, Rita E. Hauser Conducting Fellow

The Curtis Symphony Orchestra shines under the “world-class conducting” (Washington Post) of Juanjo Mena, chief conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, in a feast of Romantic storytelling. By turns whimsical and noble, Strauss’s take on the Cervantes novel Don Quixote gives way to the heady narrative of the Symphonie fantastique by Berlioz. A whirlwind tone poem by John Adams, Short Ride in a Fast Machine, sets it all in motion.
