Brahms 2 + World Premier

Melodies flow like a sunlit river in Brahms’ glorious Second Symphony, a masterpiece of sublime beauty that weaves shimmering threads into one radiant tapestry. It’s crowned by one of Brahms’ most ecstatically triumphant finales, an unbridled outburst of pure joy. The evening starts with well-known and evocative music from Britten’s landmark opera and a momentous world-premiere from one of the greatest musical voices of our time, Jennifer Higdon.
