Brahms's Double Concerto | Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Brahms's Double Concerto | Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 19:30

Rich in harmony and tenderness, Brahms's Double Concerto is a highlight of the 2019-2020 classical season in Reading, not to be missed. Favoured for its heart-swelling melodic balance between the cello and violin, against the abundance of the orchestra; the double concerto climaxes with joyful triumph and majesty.

The second half of this concert is dedicated to Tchaikovsky's monumental Symphony No 5. Tchaikovsky's use of the recurring Fate theme as an emotional core paints new orchestral colours in each movement with intensity and purpose. It is rightfully remembered as one of the great romantic symphonies.
