Heroic struggle is the order of the day for this concert. Brahms’s struggle to overcome his intimidation at tackling symphonic writing may have taken almost fifteen years, but it was worth the wait as he took Beethoven’s compositional legacy and turned it into something spectacularly his own – the heartfelt drama plays out throughout his First Symphony and comes to a triumphant close. Shostakovich’s own battle to maintain artistic integrity in the face of State persecution often worked its way into his music and his First Violin Concerto is an angular, emotionally intense work that strives to find a mood of optimism and hope amidst the darkness.
