Brahms: Serenade No. 1 in D major, Op. 11
As a surprise gift to its community, the TSO presents a special FREE digital event, TSO Live Stream: Gimeno’s Homecoming, conducted by Music Director Gustavo Gimeno.
A playful symphony by 18th-century Black composer—and champion fencer—Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, opens the program. Brahms's youthful energy and command of melody shine in a Serenade written when he was just 25 years old. Between these two musical gems, the TSO string section sings in Canadian Nathaniel Dett’s “His Song”, a soulful and poignant depiction of African American life in the early 1900s.
