Kalmar, Tetzlaff & Brahms

In his penultimate concert as music director, Carlos Kalmar returns to the piece that cemented Oregon’s love for him at his 2001 Oregon Symphony debut: Schoenberg’s heavenly orchestral arrangement of Brahms’ First Piano Quartet. Superstar violinist Christian Tetzlaff returns after nearly a decade to perform Alban Berg’s indelible Violin Concerto, combining richly lyrical melodies with devastatingly emotional music.

Brahms/Schoenberg: Piano Quartet No. 1


Carlos Kalmar, conductor
Christian Tetzlaff, violin
