Farrenc Symphony No. 3
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2

Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto is a dramatic tour de force, demanding virtuosic talent from the soloist and the orchestra with its showstopping cadenza and triumphant finale. Hailed by the Telegraph as “unequivocally brilliant,” celebrated pianist Seong-Jin Cho brings new energy to the piece. Perhaps the greatest overlooked composer of her day, Louise Farrenc wowed her contemporaries in 19th-century Paris with her inspired compositions. Her melodic Third Symphony showcases her tremendous talent.
