The audiences are lurked to follow the music to travel until they reach the Mid-Asia. Along the way, they will visit the ancient city, Kashgar, through The Market of Kashgar played by the plucked instruments, meander in the desert with The jingle of Bells hanged around the necks of Camels, and finally reach Baghdad with Scheherazade.

Death and Transfiguation-R. Strauss Cycle 10 英雄的昇華-發現理查‧史特勞斯系列10 will be on stage at the National Concert Hall 國家音樂廳 (No. 21-1 Chungshan South Rd., Taipei 台北市中山南路21-1號; Tel: 02-3393-9999) on June 3. In the last concert of the subscription series, NSO presents the zenith of soul-purification, through music. One can never be too curious about life and death. Strauss' tone poem Tod und Verklarung depicts the death of an artist. Thoughts of his life pass before his eyes--the innocence of childhood, his adolescent ambitions, romances--as he lies dying. Finally, came the long-longed transfiguration and the soul of artist havens in heaven. NSO will also present, along with Tod und Verklarung, Strauss' Symphonic Fantasy from Die Frau Ohne Schatten and Brahms' Violin Concerto in D under the baton of Maestro Wen-Pin Chien, with young violin star Hillary Hahn as the soloist. Wen-Pin Chien, conductor Hilary Hahn, violin R. STRAUSS: Symphonic Fantasy from Die Frau ohne Schatten R. STRAUSS : Tod und Verklarung, Op.24 BRAHMS: Violin Concerto, Op.77. Tickets are from NT$300 to NT$1500 and are available through the NTCH ticketing system.
