In his opening concert of the Masterworks Season, Music Director Thomas Dausgaard sets an exhilarating course with Mahler’s universal First Symphony. Brahms’ piano concertos are on a scale larger than even some of his symphonies, and Yefim Bronfman explores the full dynamic range of Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto, from the jubilant scherzo to the graceful finale. The lively Flounce by the Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski opens the evening.
