Ludwig van BEETHOVEN -- Leonore Overture No. 3 \ Johannes BRAHMS -- Nänie \ Johannes BRAHMS -- Symphony No. 1 \ Markus Stenz, conductor \ Jacksonville Symphony Chorus \ University of North Florida Chorale \ Have you ever stepped into shoes you felt you could never fill? Imagine the crushing feeling Brahms - and all of his contemporaries for that matter - felt trying to write a symphony after Beethoven’s Ninth. It wasn’t until Brahms was in his mid-40s that he felt ready to present his very first to the world, but it was certainly worth the wait. Brilliant German conductor Markus Stenz makes his Jacksonville Symphony premiere in an evening filled with the power and expressive lyricism of Brahms’ First Symphony and choral piece, Nänie, along with the most popular of Beethoven’s overtures to his lone surviving opera, now known as Fidelio. This concert is part of the Florida Blue Classical Series. \ \
