St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble: Brahms and the Search for a Symphony

Sunday, June 24, 2018

2–4 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble closes the “Facets of Brahms” series with a symphonic afternoon. This performance features Johannes Brahms's Serenade No.1 in D, which might be considered his first symphony, as restored by Alan Boustead; and the charming Symphony No. 2 in D by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Stop by before the 2 pm concert for a discussion with A. J. Benson, Orchestra of St. Luke's director of artistic administration, who provides an introduction to the Beethoven symphony and reconstruction of Brahms's Serenade, as well as a context for Brahms's steps toward a symphonic form.

Program:

  • Ludwig van Beethoven (arr. Andy Stein) Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 36
  • Johannes Brahms, Serenade No. 1 in D Major, Op. 11, restored by Alan Boustead

Tickets are $40 ($32 for Members) and are available at oslmusic.org.
