Though the original soloist of Brahms's demanding Violin Concerto once claimed it was made "not for the violin, but against it," it is now one of classical music's most popular works. Violin sensation Sarah Chang joins the NSO for all the excitement in Brahms's treasured classic - from its lively Hungarian melodies and vigorous marches to its blazingly jubilant ending.
