What's interesting about this concert...
Overture in C Major is a charming miniature full of sparkling melodies and evocative orchestrations. The music is a highlight of the composer's output.
Having been rewritten “at least half a dozen times,” Max Bruch's Violin Concerto remains an audience delight with soaring, endearing melodies and dazzling virtuosic passages.
The “Organ” Symphony is nearly unprecedented in scope. And prepare to be awestruck by the sound. "I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again," remarked the composer.
