Brahms Academic Festival Overture
Brahms Symphony No3
Brahms Symphony No2
Thomas Søndergård Conductor
Big Noise Govanhill
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! It’s the opener in tonight’s concert in which Thomas Søndergård and the RSNO join forces with the inspirational young musicians of Big Noise Govanhill for a special side-by-side performance, before diving headlong into the noble melodies, storm-swept landscapes and deep poetry of one of the Romantic period’s greatest composers.
Dedicated to Dr Robert Lillie in recognition of his generous support of the RSNO Foundation.
