The Yale Symphony celebrates the music of Austria with renowned guest conductor, Andreas Stoehr, who takes us through one of the most prolific, definitive and creative centuries in the Western classical canon. Listen to the development of orchestral music as we take your from the early-Romanticism of Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture to the post-Romantic tonalities of Berg’s captivating Seven Early Songs, sung by celebrated mezzo-soprano, Janna Baty. These two works serve as the ideal bookends to Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 — a piece that encompasses feelings of intense melancholy and unabashed triumph over four beautiful movements.
