Søndergård, Keefe and Brahms with the Minnesota Orchestra
Robert Schumann composed his "Spring" Symphony during the wintertime, dreaming of warmer days to come and the signs of life that would soon abound in nature. This sounds like the kind of activity many of us in Minnesota would understand! Thomas Søndergård conducts this bright, joyful symphony and collaborates with Concertmaster Erin Keefe for a performance of Max Bruch’s elegant First Violin Concerto. The Minnesota Chorale will lend their voices to two works on this program, performing Johannes Brahms’ "Schicksalslied" and delivering the U.S. premiere of Eleanor Alberga’s "Rise Up, O Sun!"
