Our finale revels in crisp powerful gesture, romping fun, and vivacious muscularity—oh, and also American lyricism without apology. Alexi Kenney is a poet of the violin and phenomenal virtuoso!

Brahms and Berlioz featuring Cecelia Hall, mezzo-soprano

to Mar 17

Brahms and Berlioz featuring Cecelia Hall, mezzo-soprano

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.
