In the 19th century, many regarded the symphony as obsolete. However, the genre continued to be impressively alive, as Daniele Gatti, chief conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, demonstrates in this concert. The programme includes Johannes Brahms’s lyrically melodious yet highly innovative Second Symphony and Paul Hindemith’s symphony Mathis der Maler, a sumptuous-sounding play on Baroque forms.
