Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) presents

Brahms’ Second Symphony

Rafael Payare conducts the OSM in a program including two works by masters of the Germanic repertoire for large ensemble. Haydn set the standard for the Classical symphony and his contribution to the concerto genre was indispensable. Both achievements merge in his Sinfonia Concertante, which in this performance showcases four OSM soloists. Brahms pursued Haydn’s symphonic legacy, developing its distinctive 19th-century discourse. His Symphony no. 2 combines gentleness, dance, and drama, culminating in a triumphant finale.

This concert also features Louise Farrenc’s Overture No. 2, an articulate blend of clarity and dynamism, with a buoyantly energetic theme. Farrenc was Piano Professor at the Paris Conservatoire, solidly ranking among the finest pianists and composers in France of her time.
