Frederick Delius – A Mass of Life
Delius was a fervid follower of Nietzsche, and here he set passages from the philosopher’s poem Also sprach Zarathustra to music, creating a grand and compelling work celebrating life at its highest.
Leon Botstein shares the stories behind the music in a lively 30-minute Conductor’s Notes Q&A at 7 PM in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. Free for all ticket holders.
