Programme Note

The programme for this concert and our pre-concert chamber music recital showcases sextets by Richard Strauss and Brahms, both of whom used this rich ensemble to create music of expressive beauty.

Both Wagner and Brahms saw themselves as successors to Beethoven, yet their music was strikingly different. Wagner’s Prelude to Die Meistersinger starts the concert in proud vein with Brahms’ First Symphony, being a powerful work of sublime inspiration. These frame the divine Four Last Songs by Strauss – his final and most exquisite piece.
