The music

For both the Viottis and the Jordans, conducting runs in the family! Lorenzo Viotti has curated a romantic programme for his OSR podium début.  Thanks to the heartfelt recommendations from Johannes Brahms, Antonín Dvorák gradually gained recognition among publishers and the public. Their proximity in tonight’s line-up is no coincidence. Brahms’ Third Symphony kicks off with great vigor, an energy that won’t wane until the final bars of the finale that seem to dissolve into the air like harmonious vapor. Brahms’ music rarely conveys such communicative joy and a profoundly optimistic vision. The same can be said for Antonín Dvorák’s Symphony No. 7 brimming with rhythms and popular melodies from Bohemia, especially evident in the robust scherzo, which is much like the famous Slavonic Dances.
