Brahms - Symphony No. 2

We continue our tradition of creating new works for our stellar principal players with the world premiere of Samuel Jones’s Flute Concerto, written for Jeffrey Khaner. Jones’s lyrical style is a perfect fit for Khaner’s pure tone and brilliant technique. The Overture to Rosamunde is “a small Schubertian gem” (New York Times). Brahms’s Second Symphony poured from the composer’s pen in just one summer; its sunny, pastoral nature nevertheless bears all the hallmarks of his genius. Pablo Heras-Casado returns to Verizon Hall following his stunning 2016 debut with the Orchestra.
