Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1

Masterworks Series >

“When Dausgaard conducts,” says The Seattle Times, “you can almost see the electric charge between him and the players, the eye contact and the mutual awareness of every gesture.” The Seattle Symphony’s Music Director Designate brings two imaginative works composed in his native Denmark. The prelude to Langgaard’s subversive opera Antichrist stokes the wicked humor of the Jazz age, while Nielsen’s Second Symphony paints revealing portraits of human temperaments. Pianist Garrick Ohlsson brings out every nuance of a transformative score steeped in young Brahms’ devotion to Beethoven and his affection for Clara Schumann.

Beethoven & Stravinsky

Chamber Series >

Though written for just two musicians, Stravinsky's ambitious Duo Concertant takes on the spirit of a full-fledged concerto. Stravinsky crafted this lean instrumentation for his own concert touring, faced with the prospect of performing in cities without established orchestras. Beethoven's Septet follows suit with sublime symphonic feeling for modest forces.
