It took Brahms 14 years to write his first symphony, but it was worth the wait. The piece launches with a compelling edifice of climbing strings, plunging winds and pounding drums.
What follows is a work of gripping turbulence, deep conviction and exuberant joy. Before the Brahms, we welcome a friend and true aristocrat of the violin Maxim Vengerov to play the radiant song of love that is Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, where the weave of a single instrument floats, battles and rhapsodises against an orchestral mass that supports and cajoles.
To open, a new work from Grace-Evangeline Mason, joint winner of our 2019 Composers' Workshop.
