SIMON - MOZART - BRAHMS

For many years, Brahms was unable to write a symphony, afraid that it wouldn’t live up to Beethoven’s legacy. But with Symphony No. 1, the composer conquered his fear to pen a powerful and triumphant work. African American composer Carlos Simon also takes a cue from the German master, drawing inspiration from the second movement of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony in Fate Now Conquers. Composed in 2020, the work gets the concert off to an engaging and dynamic start.
