"One of the greatest orchestral and opera composers of the late-nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Richard Strauss created brilliant tone poems such as Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegels Lustige Streiche, which rank among the most performed and studied works in the repertoire. His popular early work, Burleske for Piano and Orchestra, fully displays the remarkable orchestral color and brilliant orchestration so characteristic of his later works." (Music Scores)

Hailed for her "magnificent singing line and an exquisite artistic
sensibility", Armenian-born pianist Sofya Melikyan is recognized as an artist with a unique voice, who combines "high-wire virtuosity" with "deep musical intuition and ability to connect with the audience" (Mundoclasico).
