Why See Phoenix Symphony - Brahms and Schumann?
Liza Ferschtman Performs Brahms' Demanding Violin Concerto
Experience the passion and intensity of Webern, Schumann and Brahms as a trio of these great composers' works are presented by the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra and fearless leader Tito Munoz. Ascending the dizzying heights of virtuosity demanded by Brahms' Violin Concerto will be award-winning Dutch violinist Liza Ferschtman, a performer who has made her mark with emotional nuance and brilliant technique.
The program makes a rousing start with Webern's Passacaglia for Orchestra, a piece inspired by the 17th century form and renowned for its lush tone and textures. The uplifting fanfare-like figures and experimental from of Schumann's Symphony No. 4 follows and the evening comes to a satisfying close with Brahms' only violin concerto. The towering piece exhibits an extraordinary rhythmic interplay between soloist and orchestra, whilst demanding much of the solo violin.
Performance date: 23 February 2018
