Fun Facts:

  • Richard Strauss wrote his Cello Sonata when he was only 19 years old in the 1890s, and it became a favorite of cellists everywhere—and still is.
  • Poulenc took four months to write his elegant Flute Sonata, yet it lasts only 11 minutes.
  • Throughout the 1940s and '50s, when director Federico Fellini was creating his cinematic masterpieces, he turned to Nino Rota for music, and later said, “the most precious collaborator I ever had was Nino Rota.”
  • This concert will be performed in the Orchestra Hall auditorium.
