Grammy-award winning virtuoso pianist Yefim Bronfman joins forces with MTT for Brahms’ epic Second Piano Concerto. Composed after his first tour of Italy, Brahms’ masterpiece unites German grandeur with Italian warmth in an expansive offering that is quintessential of his mature years. Renewed hope and fate embrace as one in the final installment of Wagner’s mammoth-sized opera cycle, The Ring.  In the Prologue of Götterdämmerung, dawn breaks, musically dappling listener’s ears with audible sunshine, before alluding to Siegfried’s destiny in a repeated heroic motif, shining brightest in the hands of the French horn section.
