ACO October 2013 on period wind instruments


April 17, 2013

http://www.aco.com.au/whats_on/event_detail/brahms4 – short video clips on website

Program

DVOŘÁK Cello Concerto
BRAHMS Symphony No.4

Artists

Richard Tognetti Director and Violin
Steven Isserlis Cello


The Fourth is Brahms’ final and greatest symphony. Here, Brahms takes flight, as he melds the soaring sounds of Romanticism to classical structure in a constantly evolving drama.

Brahms premiered the symphony with a small orchestra of 48 musicians, which he declined to augment. ACO follow his lead and perform with wind instruments from Brahms’ time.
Steven Isserlis is the epitome of the intelligent and passionate cellist. Isserlis first played this concerto as a child. “I used to think it was so joyous,” he says. “As I’ve got older, the more tragic it seems.”
