The program also features La Muerte del Angel and La Resurreccion del Angel by Astor Piazzolla, Richard Strauss’ Beim Schlafengehen (one of his final completed works from Four Last Songs), the otherworldly Fratres by Arvo Pärt, Hector Villa-Lobos’ beloved Bachianas Brasileiras #1, Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin (arr. Roman), and much more!
