CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Saturday, January 31, 2015 | 8 PM

Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
This concert features two German masterpieces. Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 2 is one of the landmarks of the concerto repertoire. Cast in four movements rather than the usual three, Brahms’s concerto inspires with its impassioned orchestral writing, including a gorgeous third-movement cello solo and a heroic role for the pianist. Schumann’s Symphony No. 3, “Rhenish”—one of his most popular works—is a joyful and warmly melodic snapshot of the Rhineland.
