Beethoven & Brahms, MAY 16-18

Friday, May 16, 2025 7:30PM Sunday, May 18, 2025 1:00PM
Beethoven & Brahms with the Colorado Symphony
Beethoven & Brahms with Christopher Dragon

Description

Celebrate rarely performed gems by two titanic icons: Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms. Your Colorado Symphony’s own Concertmaster Yumi Hwang-Williams and Principal Cello Seoyoen Min grace the stage with the mesmerizing interplay of the Brahms Concerto for Violin and Cello. Brahms, who spent much of his life coping with societal expectations of being the next Beethoven, capped an illustrious career with this never-before-seen double concerto pairing which often features violin and cello in dovetailing running scale lines, creating the effect of a single string instrument with a five-octave range.

Beethoven’s Second Symphony offers a glance to the past while looking ahead to the groundbreaking compositions to come that would usher in a new era of music. Set within the framework of Haydn’s classical orchestra, audiences will hear Beethoven’s new path taking shape, with subtle previews of the earth-shattering “Eroica” Symphony.
