You're listening to a concert by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra under Eric console. We begin the second half of the program with the Rhapsody for alto male chorus and orchestra Opus 53 by Brahms. The Alto Rhapsody was composed in 1869. It's a setting of three stanzas from his poem Winter Journey Through the Hartz mountains. The poem which portrays the agony of loneliness had a personal significance for Brom the previous year he had developed an infatuation for Julie Schumann the daughter of Robert and Clara when Brahms heard the news of her engagement to an Italian nobleman. He was deeply affected. As a result. He composed the alto Rhapsody which he referred to as a bridal song for the Countess Schumann. Winter Journey depicts a lonely man who had been disappointed in love. And is making his way through the mountains. And there he finds comfort in the beauty of nature. In the final stands at the melancholy mood eels to hopefulness. Hear the soloist supported

One of her latest recordings made in London is of Handel's Theodore. The final work on the programme is. Romeo and Juliet. Overture fantasy by Kafka. This was the first work which one for it to cost me a permanent place in the concert repertoire. Was written in 1869. He idea of an overture based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet was suggested to the composer by his friend Mili. It is said that about the Kirov told him just how to write the piece beginning with the religious portrait of Friar Lawrence followed by a section on the Family Feud. Then the love scene. The renewal of the feud music. And finally the death of the lovers. Apparently to KOSKY had more advice and he cared to receive before he complained in a letter to his brother. By just me to be with him the whole day. And this is a great bore.
The original version of the overture fantasy was not well received and revised in 1870 and again in 1880. The third version is the one universally performed today. Now every country has appeared walking toward the podium in a moment we'll conduct the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in Romeo and Juliet. The overture fantasy by KOSKY. No.
