The Phoenix Symphony Chorus
Brahms: Symphony No. 4
Brahms: Tragic Overture
Stravinsky – Symphony of Psalms
Maestro Matthais Bamert and the Phoenix Symphony open our 2016-2017 season with a bold and powerful concert. Johannes Brahms’ final and monumental Symphony No. 4 engages the audience with its powerful grandeur. The Phoenix Symphony Chorus performs in Igor Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, a work based on Psalms 38, 49, and 150, and dedicated in part “to the glory of God”. The program opens with another dramatic work by Brahms, the Tragic overture which was the “weeping” counterpoint to his festive Academic Festival Overture, known for its dramatic trajectory and shattering close.
