Johannes Brahms: Double Concerto in A minor, Op. 102

Igor Stravinsky: Funeral Song
Stravinsky: Symphony in Three Movements
Concert features Miranda Liu, violin and Jonah Kim, cello performing Brahms' Concerto for Violin and Cello.
Miranda Liu recently performed the Britten and Bartok violin concertos with us, and Jonah Kim premiered Michael Daugherty's Tales of Hemingway and Elgar's Cello Concert
Concert also features teacher/pupil connection from Rimsky-Korsakov to Stravinsky. The Tsar's Departure and Farewell is a late brilliant work of Rimsky-Korsakov.
His death soon after was commemorated by Stravinsky in Funeral Song, a long-missing early work that was only recently rediscovered and played for the second time over 100 years after its 1908 premiere.
Stravinsky's style evolved quite a bit through many decades of changes. In 1945, he introduced the Symphony in Three Movements, returning to a style reminiscent of The Rite of Spring, with propulsive rhythms and scorching dissonances along with a new, jazzy element.
