Dvorak and Brahms
March 24 8:00 pm
Brahms and Dvorak had very different styles of composition, but they shared an esthetic of warm orchestral colors, deep emotion, and classical proportions. Brahms had great admiration for his younger colleague and was instrumental in establishing his reputation. The Second Symphony of Brahms is a towering masterpiece of optimism and was an instant success from its premiere in 1877. The Cello Concerto in B minor of Dvorak is one of the great romantic concertos, and remains to this day a touchstone of the cello repertoire. The extraordinary cellist, Sarah Miller, will dazzle you with her performance.
Featuring: Sarah Miller, Violoncello
