Join Chi-chi along with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in a performance of two of the most popular pieces in their repertoire, Brahms’ Violin Concerto and Dvorak’s New World Symphony.
This concert straddles the Atlantic and in doing so offers audiences the best of both worlds, old and new. There’s a Slavic start with Smetana’s Overture, before Brahms’ lyrical Violin concerto. At its premiere the composer, who was conducting, suffered an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction – something which will hopefully be avoided this evening. The concert is rounded off with Dvorak’s Symphony, written in the USA but expressing the composers longing for home.
