Zimmermann and Brahms’ Masterful Violin Concerto

Maison symphonique April 30 and 2, 2024

Frank Peter Zimmermann, one of the greatest violinists of our time, performs Brahms' quasi-symphonic Violin Concerto, in which the orchestra and the soloist engage in dialogue as equal partners. Here, the violin, with its high-energy gusto, spurs the orchestra to a playful, Romani-inspired finale. A contemporary of Brahms, Emilie Mayer, a composer well worth discovering, expresses her fascinating musical personality in her Symphony no. 7, a highly original work replete with surges of passion.

BRAHMS, Tragic Overture, op. 81 (13 min.)
Emilie MAYER, Symphony no. 7 in F minor (30 min.)
BRAHMS, Violin Concerto in D major, op. 77 (38 min.)
