Mozart + Verdi = opera, and surely this concert is brimming with drama and lyricism—wait till you hear the Finzi!—yet without a single word sung. Juho Pohjonen brings a rare intensity and conviction to this spectacularly layered concerto.

March 16 and March 17, 2019
​​​​​​​Brahms and Berlioz featuring Cecelia Hall, mezzo-soprano

  • Berlioz— Les Nuits d’été (Summer Nights) Cecelia Hall, mezzo-soprano
  • Brahms—Symphony No. 4

Light and dark—chiaroscuro—transfigure this concert of ultimate contrast. In Berlioz’s perfumed song cycle, each poem comes to languorous life, soaring or melting by turns, especially with Cecelia Hall’s richly-hued voice and magnetic artistry. Brahms’ final symphony miraculously deepens with each tone and yet simultaneously somehow shimmers with almost piercing luminosity. The conclusion is one of the most shattering in all of music.
