David Afkham returns in a program featuring three masterworks of the German repertory: Haydn’s Symphony No. 44 (Mourning), Richard Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration, and Brahms’ Third Symphony. The broadcast concludes with a 1977 Deutsche Grammophon recording of Prokofiev’s Scythian Suite lead by Claudio Abbado, the CSO’s second principal guest conductor from 1982 until 1985.
