Robert Trevino will direct laVerdi in this last appointment dedicated to Brahms’ entire symphonic repertoire. Composed over a period of two years, Symphonies no. 3 and no. 4 mark a crucial turn in the history of this musical form: after acquiring the art of Beethoven, Brahms in fact goes beyond and moves from a titanic to a more human kind of heroism, which, however, is no less tragic – the bourgeois heroism. The gates of the twentieth century were about to open.
