CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Friday, February 27, 2015 | 8 PM

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
From its intense opening measures to the finale’s noble chorale-like theme, Brahms’s Symphony No. 1 established him as heir to Beethoven’s great symphonic tradition. The Symphony No. 3 is the shortest of the composer’s four symphonies. A tightly constructed and beautifully orchestrated work, its brevity belies its emotional power and melodic beauty. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra enjoys a long and glorious association with the symphonies of Brahms, having premiered his symphonies nos. 2 and 3.
