Totentanz & Brahms’ Symphony No. 2

Sunday, October 15, 2017

To celebrate its 5th year anniversary, the Hampton Roads Philharmonic kicks off its season with an energetic and dramatic program of Berlioz, Liszt, and Brahms.  The Roman Carnival Overture by Berlioz opens the program with sweeping melodies and a mood of unreserved celebration.  Piano soloist Ben Corbin, pictured, performs the intense and moody Totentanz ("Dance of the Death") by Liszt.  Finishing the program is Brahms' Symphony No. 2, a symphonic masterpiece that invokes a pastoral mood, playfulness, melancholy, and ultimately, triumph.
