Why See National Symphony Orchestra - Eschenbach conducts Schumann and Brahms?
Christoph Eschenbach Conducts Brahms, Knussen & Schumann
A preeminent interpreter of the classical music symphonic repertoire, world renowned German composer and conductor Christoph Eschenbach rose from the struggles of an orphaned childhood in Nazi Germany to become one of the most respected figures in music today. The iconic muso leads the National Symphony Orchestra through a program of Brahms, Knussen and Schumann for two very special performances this winter.
Continuing her seasonal residency with the ensemble, violin virtuoso Leila Josefowicz performs the fleet fingerwork of Oliver Knussen's deeply expressive, three part Violin Concerto, written in the early 2000s. A muse of many a modern composer, Josefowicz is hailed as a champion of contemporary music and has debuted pieces written specifically for her by John Adams and Esa-Pekka Salonen.
Brahms: Variations on a The of Haydn
Knussen: Concerto For Violin And Orchestra
Schumann: Symphon No. 3
