    Noah Bendix-Balgley violin

  • Johannes Brahms
    Serenade No. 2 in A major, op. 16

This programme commemorates the 100th anniversary of the death of Max Bruch which is celebrated in 2020. Our first concertmaster, Noah Bendix-Balgley, is the soloist in this performance of Bruch’s First Violin Concerto with the Berliner Philharmoniker under the baton of Marek Janowski. With its yearning opening movement and sparkling finale, this work became the composer’s most popular work. The second part of the concert is dedicated to Johannes Brahms, a contemporary of Bruch. His Serenade No. 2 is characterised by the dark, warm sound typical of Brahms and is considered a milestone on the composer’s path to the symphony.
