Brahms & More
Wednesday, Jul 17, 2019 • 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm MDT| $10 – $40
Though Johannes Brahms was one of the Romantic era’s most conflicted composers, his second symphony seems cheery and pastoral. However, in a note to his editor, Brahms said the symphony “is so melancholy that you will not be able to bear it. I have never written anything so sad, and the score must come out in mourning.”
Assistant Conductor Alex Amsel will lead you through a musical journey from Leshnoff’s energetic and emotional Rush to Brahms’s light and airy Symphony No. 2.
