Mission: to seek and share inspiration
This luminous program of Viennese masterpieces begins with the enchanting and most famous of the Strauss waltzes, the Blue Danube. Berg’s Concerto is a poetic and deeply poignant work dedicated “To the Memory of an Angel”—the young daughter of Mahler's widow, who succumbed to polio.
In Augustin Hadelich’s hands the Concerto’s every phrase will be beautifully brought to life. The program ends with a final burst of sunshine, courtesy of Brahms’ Second Symphony—music he composed at the picture-postcard village of Pörtschach, just one year before Cincinnati Music Hall was built.
This program is part of Louis Langrée’s two-year BRAHMS FEST, celebrating the CSO’s German roots and connecting Brahms’ music to Cincinnati.
