LIFE AND DEATH
The symphony by the American Samuel Barber was a musical milestone of 1936, and its vibrancy has not faded with time. The young Richard Strauss’s early poem Tod und Verklärung marked an explosive statement in the composer’s struggle to overcome illness, a struggle between the fear of death and a thirst for life that grew to symphonic proportions. Roderick Cox, who made his debut at the Sibelius Hall in February 2022, makes his much-anticipated return to Lahti.
