Staatskapelle Berlin

Nov 28, 2023


Audience Favorite

Conductor Jakub Hrůša brings his “dynamic style and charismatic podium presence” (Chicago Classical Review) to one of the oldest orchestras in the world, the venerable Staatskapelle Berlin. Hear them perform Brahms’ Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3 — two works that exemplify the composer’s unparalleled mastery.

Due to health reasons, Daniel Barenboim unfortunately has to withdraw from the Staatskapelle Berlin’s upcoming North American tour. Jakub Hrůša has graciously agreed to lead the Staatskapelle Berlin in their Symphony Center Presents concert. The program remains the same.


Symphony No. 3
