Houston Symphony presents Iconic Overtures
Lust-filled, hell-bound lothario Don Giovanni comes to life in Mozart’s famed Overture, and Beethoven’s Egmont Overture offers a stirring journey from tragedy to triumph. Scotland so inspired Mendelssohn that he set his feelings to music in The Hebrides, which conjures imagery of breathtaking landscapes and sea-swept cliffs. The concerts close with Weber’s expressive and ultra-Romantic Der Freischütz Overture. It will be conducted by David Robertson.
The Saturday performance will be livestreamed for home viewers.
