Zuill Bailey, cello
Piotr Gajewski, conductor
Immerse yourself in Brahms’s vigorous, turbulent Tragic Overture, full of dark tension, followed by Schumann’s romantic and lyrical Cello Concerto performed by the celebrated cellist Zuill Bailey. Finally, enjoy Brahms’s Symphony No. 1, a work the composer struggled to write, as he felt under the shadow of Beethoven’s nine symphonies. Yet Brahms’s masterpiece features distinctive, rich music of extraordinary intensity.
