Of Note for Sun. Aug. 7, 2016: Strauss's Tone Poem for the Alps

Music can provide a great escape. Escape from the heat into the cool Alps with Richard Strauss and his tone poem "Alpine Symphony." We'll hear from the San Francisco Symphony under Herbert Blomstedt. In keeping with the #SundaySymphony vibe, we'll hear Beethoven's 2nd from Pittsburg under Reiner & Rachmaninov's tone poem "Isle of the Dead" from the Minneapolis Symphony under Mitropoulos. Tune in from 8 to 10 p.m. or stream it in its entirety via these streaming links below.
