About the Concert
Inspired by the revolutionary events taking place around him, Beethoven started a musical revolution of his own in the heroic work that kicks off our season. On receiving an honorary doctorate, Brahms penned one of his most ebullient works, including nods to student songs of the day. Audience favorite Robert Cantrell returns for the rich, sonorous colors of Lutoslawski’s beguiling nightscape.
