Brahms – Hungarian Dances
German-born Johannes Brahms spent much of his professional life as a leader of the musical scene in Vienna. The folk rhythms in these dances were influential in the early development of Scott Joplin and ragtime music.
Dvorak – Concerto fro Violoncello
Written in 1895 in New York, Dvorak’s final solo concerto is brought to life by LBSO Principal Cellist Cecilia Tsan. Brilliant technically as well as emotionally, Dvorak pays a musical tribute to the muse of a lost love.
Brahms – Symphony No. 3
From brothel pianist to Beethoven’s heir-apparent, Brahms’ popularity and influence led to his being referred to as one of the “three B’s” —along with Bach and Beethoven. This Symphony debuted in Vienna and enjoyed greater success than anything he had written to date.
