Spotlighting two members of the LA Phil family -- former resident conductor Lionel Bringuier and principal concertmaster Martin Chalifour -- this all-Romantic program features Brahms and Dvorak, who were inextricably linked, and not just because Brahms was so supportive of the younger composer. They inhabited similar sound worlds that blended Romantic impulse with Classical forms. This program also includes Bruch's lyrical heart-on-sleeve masterpiece, his Violin Concerto. Its G-minor drama is followed by the sunny G major of Dvorak's exuberant and tuneful Eighth Symphony.
