Brahms St Anthony Variations (Variations on a theme of Haydn)
Brahms Symphony No 3
Brahms Symphony No 1
We are delighted to present the Philharmonia with vibrant guest conductor, Andris Nelsons. You may have enjoyed Andris’ rapport with his own orchestra (CBSO) at Music at Oxford in previous seasons - we have no doubt that the same excitement will be on show with the Phiharmonia.
Tonight's concert offers two mainstays of the German romantic repertoire, Brahms’ Symphonies 1 and 3. No 1 finds Brahms at his most radiantly inspired and upbeat, whilst No 3 is a symphony of swirling emotions in which every movement ends quietly (audiences at the time were taken completely by surprise).
Alongside these major works is the 'St Anthony' Variations, often regarded as Brahms’ first truly symphonic work. Although often viewed as a conservative composer, Brahms's music is always full of surprises. Please do book early for this concert to avoid disappointment.
