Take a Deep Breath, Relax and Enjoy
Beethoven Symphony No.6 Pastoral
Brahms Violin Concerto
Rafael Payare Conductor
Viviane Hagner Violin
“The awakening of happy feelings on arriving in the countryside.” In his uplifting Pastoral Symphony (the best, according to many), Beethoven’s relentless struggles with fate are temporarily set aside as he takes delight in rustic rural life and the fresh air of nature.

Brahms’ sweet, songful Violin Concerto will be performed by violinist Viviane Hagner, who has been engaged as a replacement for Alina Ibragimova who has withdrawn due to unforeseen circumstances.
