Gabrieli — Antiphonal Brass Selections
Brahms — Sextet in B-Flat Major
For this special program, musicians of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Naples Philharmonic unite to perform a selection of antiphonal brass works by Italian composer Giovanni Gabrieli, one of the first significant composers ever to write specifically for brass instruments, and Brahms’ Sextet in B-flat Major, the first of his chamber works for strings and a joyful work in Brahms’ signature style that belies the immense emotional turmoil taking place in the composer’s life at the time of its creation.
