Go Fourth With Brahms!

Discovering Music!

Go Fourth With Brahms!


Sun / 24 Sep 2017 / 4:00PM


Victoria Concert Hall

It’s another round trip of musical exploration with SSO Associate Conductor Jason Lai! Learn about the life of the composers behind the music and how they make whole symphonies and concertos out of building blocks of musical themes. 

Brahms: Symphony No. 4

In this first of three Discovering Music! concerts, find out what went into Brahms’ last symphony, the Fourth, which he wrote in 1884/5. How does it link back to the symphonies of Mozart a hundred years ago? How did Brahms get past the stress of having to write symphonies after Beethoven, that titan of a composer who was his musical ancestor?
