The first University concert for the year features 2nd-year Music student Helen Kuby as the soloist in Richard Strauss’s youthful First Horn Concerto composed at the age of 18 when he was himself a University student. Commissioned by the Princesse de Polignac, Kurt Weill’s Second Symphony was written as he fled Berlin in 1933 and received its premiere in a private performance in the Princess’s salon near Paris followed by a public performance in 1934 with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Bruno Walter.
