Tchaikovsky and Brahms

Tchaikovsky and Brahms

Tchaikovsky and Brahms

05 Feb 2023 | 18:00 | Sheldonian Theatre, Broad Street

Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35
Brahms Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73

Leia Zhu violin
Marios Papadopoulos conductor

Overlooking a lake in the Austrian resort of Pörtschach, Johannes Brahms wrote a symphony that captured all he saw: the beauty of the sunset, the stillness of the night, a new day awakening. Brahms’s symphony of light and shadows tells of the magnificence of creation, but with a ribbon of mourning tied around its arm. Before Marios Papadopoulos conducts what is surely the composer’s best-loved symphony, the astonishing prodigy Leia Zhu takes on Tchaikovsky’s powerful and poetic Violin Concerto.
