Johannes Brahms in 1853, at age twenty.
This week the Minnesota Orchestra embarked on a two-week Brahms project during which the orchestra will present four different all-Brahms programs. The orchestra offers two Brahms programs this week, and will offer two Brahms programs next week.
Tomorrow night my parents and Joshua and I will hear one of this week’s programs. We will hear Music Director Osmo Vanska lead the orchestra in the Haydn Variations, the Violin Concerto (James Ehnes will be guest soloist) and the Symphony No. 3.
