Redwood Symphony to present Brahms's First

Redwood Symphony will open 2014 with Brahms’s First Symphony, one of the most emotionally powerful and cathartic musical statements ever, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, in the Main Theater of Cañada College, 4200 Farm Hill Blvd., Redwood City.

Brahms was attempting to update Beethoven’s symphonic writing with some of the latest techniques of the late 19th Century and, according to Maestro Eric Kujawsky, he succeeded brilliantly. The symphony will record the Brahms’s symphony for its next CD release.

Also, on the program will be Hungarian-born Gyorgy Ligeti’s 20th Century masterpiece, Concert Romanesc, an early, Bartok-influenced work that Kujawsky calls “rollicking good fun!”

Finally, Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is a lyrical and perfectly constructed work balancing the classical world of Mozart and the new Romantic language. Violinist Jassen Todorov will return to Redwood Symphony as soloist.

Kujawsky’s pre-concert talk will begin at 7 p.m.

Tickets from $10-$30 are available at Children under 18 are admitted free. Parking is free.

Redwood Symphony is an all-volunteer orchestra dedicated to the performance of ambitious, contemporary repertoire as well as the great orchestral classics. Its August 2012 performance of the Berlioz Requiem at Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco was critically acclaimed.
