THE PERFORMANCE

For Brahms, each symphony was a singular endeavour. Each was a response to the urge to create. The challenge was to take well-established forms and conventions – the standard orchestra, the four-movement structure – and build something fresh, original and inviting. Something that would speak to audiences and move them.

This concert offers the rare experience of two back-to-back symphonies, the Third and the Fourth. In the key of F, the Third carries the listener away on great buoyant waves while also drawing back from time to time to consider the wistful and ineffable. The Fourth, Brahms’ crowning symphony, is majestic and epic. Capping off a magnificent career, the E-minor symphony is the grandest of grand finales.
