The Melodies of Brahms
Denyce Graves, mezzo-soprano
National Philharmonic Chorale
Piotr Gajewski, conductor

The soloist in Brahms’s Alto Rhapsody, superstar mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves, has garnered popular and critical acclaim worldwide for her expressive and rich voice, elegant stage presence and exciting theatrical gift. Brahms’s Schicksalslied (“Song of Destiny”), a beloved work for chorus and orchestra, is characterized by its lush harmonies and beautiful Romantic melodies.The concert’s final work, Symphony No. 4, one of the cornerstones of the symphonic repertoire, has been described as “elegiac” and a “character symphony,” reflecting the introspection of Brahms’s later years.
