Brahms Violin Concerto, Beethoven 8 at Porter Performing Arts Center

Porter Performing Arts Center - Covington, GA

A curmudgeonly 19th century maestro sniped that the Brahms isn’t a concerto for violin, it's a "concerto against the violin." But the violin wins. Famously difficult, the Brahms concerto combines gypsy bravura with sweet melodies and symphonic muscle to hold a top spot in the hearts of music lovers. Atlanta favorite Roberto Abbado returns to conduct Beethoven's buoyant Eighth Symphony. The concert opens with a piece that serves as a prelude to genius: String Sonata No.1 written by Rossini at the age of 12. Rising star violinist Veronika Eberle makes her Atlanta Symphony debut.
