Richard Strauss – Till Eulenspiegel, einmal anders!
Leonard Rosenman/Dunn – East of Eden Suite
Arnold Schoenberg – Chamber Symphony No. 1, Op. 9
J.S. Bach – Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in D minor
Gustav Mahler – Symphony No. 10 Adagio

Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony No. 1 is an iconic masterpiece that compressed a whole symphony orchestra to 15 musicians and four movements to one. His model inspired many others, including Franz Hasenöhrl, who arranged Richard Strauss’s tuneful Till Eulenspiegel from a massive orchestra to violin, clarinet, horn, bassoon, and double bass. Two-time Oscar-winning film composer Leonard Rosenman studied with Schoenberg. Scott Dunn’s piano four hands arrangement offers a taste of Rosenman’s East of Eden. Two works packed with emotion provide a bittersweet finale to the final season. Bach’s monumental Chaconne is a 15-minute tour de-force. Jacaranda fades to black with Mahler’s final work, the fiercely beautiful Symphony No. 10 Adagio arranged by Hans Stadlmair for strings.
