Program

BRAHMS
Symphony No. 3  / 33 min

At a Glance

Ask just about any conductor which of the four Brahms symphonies is their favorite, and you'll be money ahead if you bet on the Third. This is Brahms at his best: touching melody, driving rhythm, and the richest Romantic-era harmonies. In a compact Symphony in 60 setting, you'll hear this beauty, then be on with your Saturday night on the town.

Artists

Did You Know?

  • Music critic (and Johannes Brahms’ friend) Eduard Hanslick referred to Brahms’ Third Symphony as artistically “nearly perfect.”
  • A symphony worth fighting over: An intense public feud between Johannes Brahms and Richard Wagner led many of Wagner followers to try and interfere with the Third Symphony's premiere.
  • Brahms the perfectionist: Before publishing his First and Second String Quartets, Brahms claimed he destroyed about 20 others because he was unsatisfied by their quality.
