Students and staff are invited to listen to a complete cycle of Brahm’s Symphonies, at Nottingham’s Albert Hall on 25 and 26 March. The four symphonies are a pinnacle of Brahms's career, and of music in the 19th century. They cover a wide range of emotions, from the stern drama of the first, through the joy of the second, the nostalgic reflection of the third, to the power of the fourth. The Symphonies will be performed by Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the best non-professional orchestras in Britain, and will be conducted by Mark Heron.
The performance will be of special interest to the University of Nottingham, as the orchestra will be playing music edited by Emeritus Professor of Music, Robert Pascall. There will also be a pre-concert talk for each performance.
Symphonies one and two will be performed on 25 March at 7.30pm and the third and fourth on 26 March at 3pm. Tickets range from £8-£15 with special prices when buying tickets for both concerts and £5 student tickets. These will be available on the door from Royal Centre Box Office, Nottingham, on the phone at 0115 989 5555 and online here.
