RUSH HOUR #2: CLASSICAL FUSION
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

Brahms Tragic Overture
Dvořák
 Symphony No.6

Simon Over conductor

Musical friendships often act as catalysts for inspiration, like that between Brahms and Dvořák. But while the latter’s Sixth Symphony was steered by his friend’s writing, the beautiful melodies from the woodwind are no mere imitation, with Dvořák also bringing hints of Beethoven, a Viennese dance and his Czech heritage in a captivating fusion. In his Tragic Overture, the master puppeteer Brahms pulls strings of turbulent, tormented emotion against which nobody is immune. We welcome back former members to bolster the orchestra for this symphonic feast.
