The evening will begin with Mendelssohn’s “Scottish
Symphony.” Featuring a dark and stormy first movement, the piece quickly takes a turn for the joyous and lighthearted with a finale that is reminiscent of a Scottish Folk Dance.
Brahm’s Piano Concerto No. 2 takes the piano to its limits by combining dramatic movements with melodious periods, all finishing with a finale that can be described as thunderous and awe-inspiring.
