About this event

Completing this year’s cycle of Brahms symphonies, the Cleveland Orchestra returns to perform the sunny Second. The composer was in unusually high spirits while composing it, joking with his publisher, ‘I have never written anything so sad’. The result, in fact, sets aside Brahms’s habitual seriousness and dramatic tensions in an open-hearted score of great warmth and appeal.

By contrast, Brahms’s Tragic Overture lives up to its name with turbulent intensity, and the concert is completed by Jörg Widmann’s Teufel Amor – a musical account of the contradictions, tensions and resolutions of love, inspired by Schiller’s lost poem.
