SCO Chorus

There is certainly no shortage of contrast here. The Four Serious Songs are among Brahms’ most profound and personal works – deeply meditative music. They are performed here with his frothy and whimsical Liebeslieder Walzer – pop music of the highest quality. Schumann, who was a close friend to Brahms, is also heard in dramatically different modes – the Overture, Scherzo and Finale is sheer extrovert showmanship, while the Nachtlied brings the evening to a beautifully serene close.

Pre-Concert Talk, 6.30pm Dr Fiona Elliott talks about the Age of Romanticism (free to ticket holders).
