At our final Classical masterworks concert of the year, we bring Europe’s many dance traditions together. You will hear a traditional, elegant, and swirling Viennese waltz by Johann Strauss, Jr., the “Waltz King.” You will enjoy the stately and classical Rococo Variations with Hellam Competition Winner Bryan Cheng on the cello. We conclude our concert with Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, which includes foot-stomping dances and yodeling from one of Mahler’s early songs, Hans und Grete. "Dance around, around!" the song goes. "Let whoever is happy weave in and out! Let whoever has cares find his way home.
