Classical Music Amarillo Plays Richard Strauss's Greatest Hits

This weekend on October 22nd, Chamber Music Amarillo's "Music of the Mountains" program will feature pieces by Richard Strauss, a legendary Austrian composer whose long life spanned the 19th and 20th centuries. Tune in for two of Strauss’s most famous compositions: Tod und Verklärung, or Death and Transfiguration: and Also Sprach Zarathustra or Thus Spoke Zarathustra. You'll also get to hear a bit about the upcoming concert from the director of the Amarillo Virtuosi Brass Chorale, Dr. Guglielmo Manfredi.

HPPR's new host for Classical Music Amarillo, Dr. Kimberly Hieb, brings her rich knowledge of music history to our regional classical music program.
