San Antonio Symphony: Brahms Symphony No. 4

Resolve to be a more active participant in the local arts and culture scene this year? Whether or not that’s the case, the San Antonio Symphony’s first concert of 2019 is a great entry point for anyone who could be considered less classically inclined. Kicking off with Tan Dun’s Passacaglia: Secret of Wind and Birds, the Symphony performs a modern meditation on nature with creative instrumentation that includes slide whistle, flexatone, iPhones and a few other surprises. They next shift gears to our man Wolfgang Amadeus, showcasing Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero on the Piano Concerto No. 24, one of the few works in which Mozart embraced a darker, minor key. But, the big guns don’t come out until the end: to close out the night, the Symphony whips out the Brahms Symphony No. 4. The final symphony of Brahms’ career culminates in what is considered to be one of his crowning orchestral achievements – it’s monumentally epic, and not to be missed!
