MENDELSSOHN, The Hebrides, Op. 26

BRAHMS, Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 73

In a country with some of the most renowned orchestras in the world and centuries-old traditions that place orchestral music and concertgoing at the center of its cultural life, the Hamburg Symphony stands out. Offering virtuosic interpretations of the classics, the orchestra entrances audiences and critics: “precise yet flowingly molded gestures, delicately mixed sound images, tender phrases, and powerful climaxes” (Die Welt). They perform here with the American violinist Robert McDuffie, whose “arching, lyrical, sweet-toned sound” (The New York Times) graces the great Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto.

This performance is scheduled to last 83 minutes with an intermission.

For this performance the Prelude Cafe will feature:

Sauerbraten (Braised Brisket in Red Wine)
Jagerschnitzel (Pan Fried Pork Cutlet) with Mushroom Gravy
Roasted Chicken with Caraway
Braised Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage
Glazed Carrots and Parsnips
