Brahms Symphony No. 3
For much of his life, Johannes Brahms felt the omnipresent weight of Beethoven’s shadow looming over him but by the time he reached this, his third and perhaps most stirring symphony, he had emphatically found his own unique voice and flourished into an icon in his own right. The Third is richly Romantic, featuring sweeping, lyrical string lines and beautifully autumnal woodwind passages that make this symphony a delight from start to finish.
Electrifying violinist Stefan Jackiw — called “...one of the most insightful violinists of his generation” by The Boston Globe — lends his athletic virtuosity to Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto which features a lively and dance-like final movement that will leap off the stage under the baton of Jun Märkl.
