The concert will begin with Wagner’s overture for the opera “The Master-Singers of Nuremburg”.

most successful works. We will be ending with Brahms’ monumental Symphony No. 3. Written when he was a 50-year-old bachelor, Brahms uses a three note theme throughout the work to signify that he was “free but happy.” Perhaps the most famous movement, the third, has been used in a number of films and is intensely lyrical.
