Please note that this concert has been cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis.Parry Elegy for Brahms
Szymanowski Violin Concerto No.2
Brahms Symphony No.2
Andrew Manze conductor
Sebastian Bohren violin
The cellos sing, the horns call, and in a surge of summer warmth, Brahms’s Second Symphony is on its way. It’s glorious stuff – an old master kicking off his shoes and just letting the melodies flow – and it’s a special favourite of our Principal Guest Conductor, Andrew Manze. It was his idea to pair it with Szymanowski’s romantically charged violin concerto (introducing the stunning Sebastian Bohren on violin) and with Hubert Parry’s rarely-heard Elegy for Brahms: pure beauty, from the composer who wrote Jerusalem.
