Conductor Steven Errante says of the featured work, “Johannes Brahms worked on his Symphony No. 1 for fifteen years, intimidated by having to follow in the mighty footsteps of Beethoven. What finally resulted was a masterful work, at times brooding and intense but ultimately triumphant.” For more information, please join Dr. Errante for his pre-concert commentary at 6:30 pm in Kenan Auditorium, or visit our website for program notes at www.wilmingtonsymphony.org/program-notes.
