To mark the opening of the Morning Symphony Series in our 90th anniversary year, Asher Fisch conducts one of the most majestic and extravagant of all orchestral works, Strauss' An Alpine Symphony. Strauss’ enthralling musical travelogue depicts a journey to the peaks of the Bavarian Alps, through dark forests, ferocious storms and a stunning waterfall. “… prepare to hear Eine Alpensinfonie elevated to the level of a Bruckner or Mahler symphony under the baton of Asher Fisch. Highly recommended.” Limelight Magazine
