What's interesting about this concert...

  • Academic Festival Overture — one of Brahms’ most prized and performed works. With a nod to German folk songs and tunes sung at bars, the composer himself conducted the 1881 premiere.

  • Hansel & Gretel started as a Christmas puppet show by Humperdinck's sister, who dialed in a sibling favor. She asked her brother to write a few songs for the adaptation and the music is now a beloved holiday classic.

  • Fantasia on Greensleeves, an exquisite four-minute orchestral miniature that has far eclipsed the song it was inspired by, which was a traditional melody during the days of the Tudors.
