Brahms 4 with Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Symphonic30 Apr '24 - 06 May '24(Past)

A musical legacy: How Dvořák's support from Brahms led to the rise of Florence Price's sparkling violin concerto.


Dvořák's work exudes such self-confidence that one would almost forget how much the composer once owed Brahms' support. In turn, Dvořák would help a whole generation of composers – including Florence Price – advance by championing African American music in the US. With great results, listen: Price's sparkling violin concerto deserves a place between Dvořák and Brahms.
