The Melodies of Brahms

The soloist in Brahms’s Alto Rhapsody, superstar mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves, has garnered popular and critical acclaim worldwide for her expressive and rich voice, elegant stage presence and exciting theatrical gift. Brahms’s Schicksalslied (“Song of Destiny”), a beloved work for
chorus and orchestra, is characterizedby its lush harmonies and beautiful Romantic melodies. The
concert’s final work, Symphony No. 4, one of the cornerstones of the symphonic repertoire, has been described as “elegiac” and a “character symphony,” reflecting the introspection of Brahms’s later years.
