A spotlight on instruments and a joyful finale for voices.

Stravinsky celebrates the beautiful variety of wind and brass in his small but perfectly formed Symphonies, while it’s simply strings for Strauss in the gorgeous Metamorphosen - which quotes Beethoven throughout. Beethoven himself is on magnificent form in his famous Choral Symphony, featuring a quartet of equally magnificent soloists in its awe-inspiring "Ode to Joy" in the final movement.
