Symphony No.1 "Titan"

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Kirill Karabits (conductor)

A new symphonic universe was born in Mahler's First Symphony. This youthful outpouring teems with life - from the hushed opening, like an awakening from sleep, to the exuberant horn fanfares. And not far away is the lyrical ardour of the songs of the wayfaring man.
Brahms's concerto is a song for the violin on a symphonic scale - a lyrical outpouring of joyous energy from its confident yet wistful opening to fiery finish. It's played tonight by Guy Braunstein, the former concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic.
