Event Details

The Fourth is Brahms' final and greatest symphony. Here, Brahms takes flight, as he melds the soaring sounds of Romanticism to classical structure in a constantly evolving drama.

Brahms premiered the symphony with a small orchestra of 48 musicians, which he declined to augment. We follow his lead and perform with wind instruments from Brahms' time.
Steven Isserlis is one of our favourite collaborators – the epitome of the intelligent and passionate cellist.   There could be no better soloist for Dvorák's ardent and much-loved concerto. Isserlis first played it as a child. "I used to think it was so joyous," he says. "As I've got older, the more tragic it seems."
