Information about the programme

Unfortunately, Herbert Blomstedt had to cancel his Brahms cycle due to illness. Now we will experience the complete programme of the four symphonies with two different guests on the podium. Thomas Hengelbrock, who has already realised many exciting programmes with the BRSO, will conduct the first part with Symphonies No. 1 and No. 2. Brahms’ struggle for his first symphonic work, which the scrupulous composer only presented to the public at the age of 43, is legendary. In line with the high expectations, Brahms finally presented a monumental work with a serious, pathetically coloured mood with his C minor Symphony. After that the Second Symphony in D major followed just one year later, which has a completely different character: Due to its cheerful, idyllic tone, it was also referred to as Brahms’ “Pastoral”.
