Staatskapelle Weimar Orchestra: An Evening of Brahms

Founded in 1491, the Staatskapelle Weimar is one of the oldest, most illustrious orchestras in the world with its history closely associated with some of the area’s best known musicians, including Johann Hummel, Franz Liszt, Richard Strauss – and many others. In 1756, the orchestra was made the primary musical institution of the German city of Weimar and to this day, remains that city’s musical beacon to the world. On this rare North American tour, the orchestra will feature Brahms: an early overture; the Violin Concerto in D Major, Opus 77; and the triumphant Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, Opus 68. Come join us for a stunning tribute to Johannes Brahms.
