Concert Review: “Joshua Gerson Leads KSO in Beethoven, Strauss, and Tchaikovsky” by Alan Sherrod

Check out the review Alan Sherrod wrote of this week’s masterworks performances with the fabulous Paul Huang and guest conductor Joshua Gersen.

Of Strauss’s “Death and Transfiguration” Sherrod wrote:

Gersen uncovered every shred of sadness in the piece, given substance by beautiful work from the KSO woodwinds. The solo violin (concertmaster William Shaub) carries a lyrical theme which peacefully returns a bit later in the flute (Hannah Hammel). Eventually, the sadness is overcome by the transfiguration, a soaring and luminous ending that was endowed with both mystery and majesty by Gersen and the orchestra.
