Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68

Lan Shui and the SSO open the season with Tan Chan Boon’s Soir, Rêves, Fantaisie. Lyricism, fantasy and mischief come alive in Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 1 under the bow of Gil Shaham. Lan Shui begins the SSO’s Brahms Symphonies cycle with the epic Symphony No. 1 in C minor, a work that Brahms wrote and refined over a period of 21 years, embodying all the hallmark qualities of the German Romantic master.
