Michalis Economou directs the MPO for a night of great music from the late romantic period, with the renowned Israeli violinist Guy Braunstein joining the orchestra for a performance of Brahms’ sole violin concerto. Brahms wrote the concerto for his friend and close collaborator Joseph Joachim, who provided constant advice the composer during its composition.

Starting with a funeral march and ending with a cheerful finale, Mahler’s Fifth Symphony stands out for its vast emotional range as well as its famous fourth movement, the intimate Adagietto that may well be the composer’s most well-known work.
