Louis Langrée, the highly revered music director of Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart and the Cincinnati Symphony, joins to Philadelphia Orchestra for the first time at the Kimmel Center. Known for his distinct artistry, Langrée will lead the orchestra in a performance of Brahms’s Second Symphony. Brahms Symphony No. 2 was written in 1877, and is noted for its cheerful sound and noticeable difference from his First Symphony.
Star violinist Midori returns to the orchestra for the first time since 2007, and the show will open with Alfred Schnittke’s theatrical mashup of Mozart, Haydn, and modern music accompanied by quirky staging and lighting. This evening of music is the perfect complement to dinner downtown or can stand on its own as an entertaining event.
