Peer Gynt & Brahms 1

Grieg’s ever-popular Peer Gynt whispers with fairy-tale magic as it journeys from a breathtaking sunrise to the spooky haunts of the Mountain King. The development of Brahms’s First Symphony was famously prolonged—Beethoven’s revolutionary stamp on the form was a daunting act to follow—but when he flexed his symphonic might at long last, it was with an emphatic, triumphant roar. Berlin Philharmonic Principal Horn Stefan Dohr is considered one of the great horn players in the world, and he shares music by one of today’s foremost composers. (Pictured: Stefan Dohr, horn)

This concert is available in the Friday and Saturday 1 subscription series.
