Acclaimed conductor David Robertson conducts some of music’s all-time great overtures—dramatic and evocative curtain-raisers that capture us from the first note. Lust-filled, hell-bound lothario Don Giovanni comes to life in Mozart’s famed Overture, and Beethoven’s Egmont Overture offers a stirring journey from tragedy to triumph. Scotland so inspired Mendelssohn that he set his feelings to music in The Hebrides, which conjures imagery of breathtaking landscapes and sea-swept cliffs.
