Let him out because the soloist with knights who will conduct the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. On the second half of the program will be viewing the Brahms symphony number two in the majors. Right now we will take this opportunity to pause for just a few levitation This is NPR National Public Radio. We're back in Music Hall for the second half of this concert by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra produced for National Public Radio by WGN. You see I'm Myron Bennett. On the second half of the program we will be hearing next Rudolph conducting the Brahms
symphony number two in D major opus 73. Number two is usually an early symphony and we think of that number as being a youthful work by a composer. From spent many years of planning and replanning writing and rewriting before he lost his first symphony in D minor. He was about. Forty two or three done. But his Second Symphony in D Major followed with less than a year later and the official world premiere was given in 1877. The symphony was in strong contrast to the tragic first and the audience responded enthusiastically. But not everyone was pleased. For some Brahms Ians were expecting another epic work such as the first. One critic from Leipzig said the Viennese are much more easily satisfied than we. We make quite different demands on drums and require from the music which is something more than pretty. Well pretty of course is hardly a word for the symphony. Although the dominant moods are
pastoral and lyrical. There is a somber feeling which because throughout especially in the Adagio. The first movement Allegro non troppo is notable for the lyricism of its themes. The symphony opens with a romantic melody for horns which will recur often throughout the first movement. The second movement adagio non-troll book has a romantic and yet somewhat a noose of character. In minuet with two trios forms the third movement of the Greater Good luck C also with don t know. Them the vastus of Aisha's finale and I grow corn the spinach Oh this is rich and famous and it has reminiscences of passages in the earlier movements. The applause grating Sigma definitely counts in mastery of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Today the symphony is almost universally rated as one of the most seemingly beautiful
proms works. But besides being these people mentioned before. American critics especially. Dumbfounded by this one said he seems to have forced music out of his brain as if by hydraulic pressure to fathom the work he adds would take a year of severe intellectual work with little assurance that such labor would be repaid. Some critics today sound much the same. They're waiting now for Max Rudolf the conductor emeritus of the Cincinnati something orchestra areas. Thanks a little thanks now we will hear the Brahms symphony number two in D major opus 73 A.
