Dvořák and Brahms 
Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 8 pm
The Madison Theatre at Molloy College

Scott Jackson Wiley, Conductor
Sarah Miller, Violoncello

Brahms – Symphony n. 2, op. 73 in D major

Dvořák – Concerto for Violoncello, op. 104 in B minor

Brahms and Dvořák  had very different styles of composition, but they shared an esthetic of warm orchestral colors, deep emotion, and classical proportions. Brahms had great admiration for his younger colleague and was instrumental in establishing his reputation. The Second Symphony of Brahms is a towering masterpiece of optimism and was an instant success from its premiere in 1877. The Cello Concerto in B minor of Dvořák is one of the great romantic concertos, and remains to this day a touchstone of the cello repertoire. The extraordinary cellist, Sarah Miller, will deliver a dazzling performance.
