Beethoven and Brahms

Thu Jul 10 — Sat Jul 12, 2025

Orchestra Hall

~2 hours, including intermission

Johannes Brahms’ Second Symphony was written at a beautiful summer resort in Austria where he’d rented a couple of rooms and was surrounded by nature. When a friend played through the score he told Brahms, “It is all rippling streams, blue sky, sunshine, and cool green shadows.” Doesn’t that sound like a perfect day in Minnesota?
