Brahms: Academic Festival Overture
Brahms: Symphony No 3 in F major
Brahms: Symphony No 2 in D major
Thomas Søndergård, conductor
When the University of Breslau gave Brahms an honorary degree, they
were honouring a master of the symphony – a man who could express
the experience of a lifetime in music of thrilling grandeur and sweep.
They definitely didn’t expect a riotous overture based on student
drinking songs! But that’s how Thomas Søndergård opens tonight’s
concert, before diving headlong into the noble melodies, storm-swept
landscapes and deep poetry of a composer who could move mountains but
preferred to touch the human heart.
