This evening’s program opens with one of Brahms’s proudest dispatches from the Austrian countryside where he enjoyed creative summertime retreats. Then, composer-in-residence John Harbison transports us from the New England sun to the oppressively dark expanse of a Wisconsin winter for Snow Country, featuring the oboe against an earthy backdrop of string textures. To conclude the concert with the first orchestral performance this season, we welcome Armenian-born and internationally renowned cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan for his Festival début, playing Tchaikovsky’s concerto-like Rococo Variations.
Please join us following the performance for a reception at The Daniel.
