Music Director Designate Maestro Otto Tausk returns to the VSO, conducting a beautiful program of classics, including one of the greatest symphonies of them all, a work that emerged triumphantly from under the shadow of Beethoven's mighty Ninth Symphony. Brahms struggled mightily with the idea of writing a symphony in the wake of Beethoven's Ninth, feeling that music had been perfected in that great work. He finally worked up the courage after twenty years of delay; and his Symphony No. 1 was worth the wait, a stunning symphonic statement that in many ways picked up where Beethoven left off.

Dvořák's Cello Concerto is perhaps the best-loved of the "big five" cello concerti, a beautiful work that is not consumed by flashy solo parts, but seamlessly and brilliantly integrates the cello and orchestra into a dynamic, lyrical and rewarding dialogue.
