[ezcol_2third]Nicholas McGegan explores the musical genius of Brahms in his glory years. Since its premiere in 1877, Brahm’s celebrated 2nd Symphony has moved and rejuvenated audiences with its warmth and variety. Mother and daughter team Mihyang and Esther Keel make it a family affair with Poulenc’s exotic and jazzy Double Piano Concerto inspired by Mozart, Liszt and Ravel.
