Next is Brahms’ final composition for orchestra, the innovative Double Concerto for Violin and Cello, a sweeping work known for its dramatic beginning, lyrical and mysterious middle section and gypsy-flavored final movement. The second half of the program will feature Prokofiev’s epic Fifth Symphony, conceived as “a symphony to the greatness of the human spirit,” which the composer considered his finest work.
