What’s Interesting About This Concert
- This all-Brahms celebration kicks off with Hungarian Dances Nos. 6 & 5, lively, fast-paced sprints inspired by traditional folk music of the region.
- This will be the first time that Music Director Donato Cabrera conducts Brahms Symphony No. 3. The piece was hailed at its premiere as “Brahms’ Eroica,” after Beethoven’s own much loved third symphony.
- Soloists Kobialka and Herbert were both members of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra when Music Director Donato Cabrera led the ensemble.
