About

Cellist Claudio Bohórquez, "an elegant artist who places his emphasis on song" (Washington Post), plays Prokofiev's Sinfonia concertante on a program that includes Brahms's Symphony No. 4 and Haydn's "La Passione" Symphony.

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.  

Glenn Donnellan, NSO violin, on Brahms's masterpiece:

"I love that you can hear how Brahms was the Romantic master in just the first bar of his 4th Symphony. The first movement alone is like a whole symphony in itself--and the second slow movement is regal, touching, and full of pathos, with some of the juiciest violin writing ever."

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.

Note: Friday, Nov. 7 and Saturday, Nov. 8 Claudio Bohórquez will sign CDs and materials after the concert, in the Grand Foyer outside of the Concert Hall.
