About Brahms's Symphony No. 4:
Rich in allusions to Beethoven and Bach, Brahms's final symphony is perhaps most celebrated for its majestic finale. Through more than 30 variations on a theme, it explores a range of emotions--from melancholy to nobility to triumph--not to mention sheer orchestral color beyond anything Brahms attempted in his earlier symphonies.
Performance Timing: Part One - 65 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 35 min.
AfterWords: Thu., Nov. 6 performance followed by a free discussion with the artists and NSO Director of Artistic Planning Nigel Boon.
