- Overture, Der Freischütz

Weber’s opera Der Freischütz was a breakthrough in the history of music. Considered by many to be the first German Romantic opera, it influenced composers including Richard Wagner. The work’s Overture contrasts lilting pastoral serenity with moments of drama and suspense.
Few can resist Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.2, a work which overflows with aching emotion, communicated through a piano part ranging from gentle poignancy to glittering display.
Brahms was unsure of his Second Symphony, writing to a friend expressing ‘I don’t know whether I have a pretty symphony.’ Its lyrical beauty however makes it one of his most popular works, with soaring melody, pastoral imagery and a blazing brass fanfare to close.
This performance will be recorded and available as a video stream in the near future.
