Stravinsky Symphony in Three Movements
Brahms Double Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No. 6 in F major, ‘Pastoral’
We are delighted to welcome two vibrant young artists, violinist Daniel Pioro and cellist Anastasia Kobekina, as soloists in Brahms’s tender Double Concerto, his farewell to orchestral writing. Conductor Elena Schwarz bookends the evening with Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, an evocative portrait of the countryside around Vienna, and Stravinsky’s final symphony – a fireball of energy.
