  • overview
    Awed by Beethoven’s colossal shadow, Brahms took 21 years to complete his first symphony. Within mere months of its premiere, a second came into being. Filled with sumptuous, free-flowing melodies and capped by a triumphant roar, this is music that reveals a symphonic master boldly taking on the mantle and making it his own. Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 sparkles with the crystalline beauty of Mozart, but courses with an intensity that’s all Beethoven. Legendary, seven-time Grammy Award-winning pianist Emanuel Ax is your soloist. Pre-Concert Activities: Attend the Prelude pre-concert discussion, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical concert. Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists or orchestra members.
