Leonard Slatkin leads the Philharmonic in the finale of our Bernstein festival. Oscar winner Jeremy Irons is the speaker in the powerful “Kaddish” Symphony, evoking the Jewish prayer of mourning and encompassing paeans to God, a confrontation between man and God, and a plea for peace. Strauss’s witty vignettes plunge us into the delightful flights of fancy of the bumbling knight-errant Don Quixote.
