"…what one carries away from a Serkin Brahms performance is of a startling intimacy, expressed on a heroic scale." --Boston Globe
Brahms and Tchaikovsky together should be enough for any concert. But to cap this one off, we have engaged master pianist Peter Serkin to perform the D-minor Concerto with his frequent collaborator, Maestro George Cleve. Our December program marks Serkin’s first San Jose appearance in over two decades. Brahms’s concerto is paired with the deeply dramatic symphony that Tchaikovsky himself called "the best thing I ever composed or ever shall compose."
