Brahm's First Symphony

RUNE BERGMANN conductor

MARIANNE BEATE KIELLAND mezzo-soprano

NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Brahms took 14 years to write his first symphony, a masterwork for all time. Celebrated Norwegian mezzo-soprano Marianne Beate Kielland journeys through Mahler’s searching Wayfarer, one delight from an unforgettable evening of late-Romantic treasures.

WAGNER Overture to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

Wagner’s opera was a departure in many ways from his usual style, but its overture retains his vivid sense of triumph and passion.

MAHLER Songs of a Wayfarer

Mercurial and ecstatic, Mahler’s charming themes appear later in his first symphony. This, his first song cycle, announced his genius to the world.

BRAHMS Symphony No. 1

Brahms, in awe of Beethoven’s Ninth, aspired to equal it in the finale of this proud and majestic Symphony.
