Brahms Symphony No. 3 has long been considered by critics and other composers as a cornerstone of the symphonic repertoire. A balance of unifying form and romance, this symphony is Brahms at the summit of his expressive powers. Also included in this program is an opportunity to welcome Victoria trained and now internationally acclaimed violinist, Timothy Chooi, for a performance of Korngold’s wildly virtuosic and enthralling Violin Concerto in D major.
The Victoria Symphony performs on the traditional lands of the Lekwungen peoples and acknowledges with respect the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continues to this day. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live, create, and perform on this territory.
