Britten - Four Sea Interludes from
Jennifer Higdon - Harp Concerto
Brahms - Symphony No. 2
Ward Stare, conductor
Yolanda Kondonassis, harp
Melodies flow like a sunlit river
in Brahms’ glorious Second Symphony, a masterpiece of sublime beauty that
weaves shimmering threads into one radiant tapestry. It’s crowned by one of
Brahms’ most ecstatically triumphant finales, an unbridled outburst of pure
joy. The evening starts with well-known and evocative music from Britten’s
landmark opera and a momentous world-premiere from one of the greatest musical
voices of our time, Jennifer Higdon. Join conductors and special guests for a
free, fun, and lively discussion about the music before each Philharmonics
Series concert. Talks start one hour before the concert and end with ample time
for you to refresh before the concert begins. Talks are held on the orchestra
level of the Eastman Theatre.
