Van Zweden conducts Brahms' Fourth Symphony - Katharine Hanrahan Open Rehearsal

Wednesday, Oct 24, 2012 10:00a
Davies Symphony Hall San Francisco, CA

The year Haydn praised him as the greatest composer, Mozart premiered a sprightly concerto, now familiar from Amadeus. Fray and Van Zweden, said the BBC, "work together with remarkable symbiosis." Toward the end of the 19th Century, one was either a Wagnerian or a Brahms fan; today, we can happily enjoy both giants. Brahms's energetic Fourth Symphony is at times wistful and at others, rambunctious, but totally fulfilling.
