Wagner’s orchestral masterpiece Siegfried Idyll was a surprise birthday present for his wife Cosima after the birth of their son, Siegfried. Full of love, passion, and emotion, she awoke to it on Christmas morning 1870 when it was performed on the stairs of their villa by a small ensemble. Dark and brooding, Sibelius’ Valse Triste is one of his signature works, mesmerizing in its orchestral color and expressiveness. Haydn’s Symphony No. 31 is nicknamed the “Hornsignal” because it prominently features an unusually large horn section. One of the composer’s early and most unique works, it will showcase many of the CSO's principal players and, of course, its quartet of French horns.
