Strauss – Also Sprach Zarathustra – Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and OSG Youth Orchestra

Conducted by Dima Slobodeniouk, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia (Galicia Symphony Orchestra) and the Youth Orchestra of OSG perform Richard Strauss’ “Also sprach Zarathustra” (Thus Spoke Zarathustra or Thus Spake Zarathustra), a tone poem composed in 1896. Recorded at the Palace of the Opera of A Coruña on February 26, 2016. Published by the Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia channel.
