Bartók Violin Concerto No. 2
Brahms Symphony No. 1

Laboring under the towering shadow of Beethoven’s monumental works, Brahms spent two decades crafting his First Symphony. The wait was assuredly worth it: The First exceeds all the weighty expectations the composer struggled with. First Associate Concertmaster Juliette Kang takes center stage for Bartók’s ingenious Second Violin Concerto, infused with Hungarian folk-dance melodies.
