Omaha Symphony Brahms' Serenade No. 1 Witherspoon Theater

Ryan McAdams, conductor
Nate Olson, double bass soloist

LIGETI:  Concerto Romanesque
MAZZOLI:  Dark with Excessive Bright
BRAHMS:  Serenade No. 1

San Francisco Symphony program annotator Michael Steinberg said, “If Brahms had called his enchanting Serenade in D Major a symphony – and he almost did – we could be hearing it all the time.” Brahms thunders, soars, and dances in this symphonic work. You don’t know Ligeti until you’ve heard our concert opener, a playful, explosive ode to his Romanian roots, and contemporary composer Missy Mazzoli adds a thrilling, fresh work to the double bass repertoire inspired by Milton’s Paradise Lost and a 400-year-old instrument.
