Great Symphonic Expectations

How Brahms extricated himself from Beethoven’s formidable shadow and forged his own legacy with the long-awaited debut of his First Symphony

Nick Dobreff 0 892

The moniker “Beethoven’s 10th” has long been attached to Brahms’ First Symphony, the fulfillment of a prophecy articulated nearly a quarter century before, when Schumann hailed then-20-year-old Brahms as the great Beethoven’s successor. And indeed the work is a natural continuation of Beethoven’s musical legacy, containing echoes of Beethoven’s Fifth and Ninth Symphony’s and yet standing alone as a truly magnificent and unique symphonic achievement. The Colorado Symphony will perform this monumental work October 15-17, 2021 at Boettcher Concert Hall under the baton of Resident Conductor Christopher Dragon.
