North Carolina Symphony Classical Series: Brahms Symphony No. 2


The cheerful nature of the Brahms Symphony No. 2 calls to mind bright sunshine and blue skies, and Ligeti’s Romanian Concerto shimmers with spirited folk tunes. Together with the unabashedly romantic Korngold Violin Concerto—which leaves no question as to Korngold’s background as a film composer—this is a feel-good program that speaks directly to the soul.
