Concert opens with Brahms, including the Variations on a Theme of Haydn

Hahm_conducting_a_emailMusic director Shinik Hahm will lead the Yale Philharmonia in a program of Brahms and Mahler on Friday, October 23 at 8 pm. The free concert will take place in historic Woolsey Hall, where nearly 100 years ago (in February of 1910) Mahler himself conducted the illustrious New York Philharmonic in a concert of music ranging from Bach to Berlioz. Mahler will be represented by his Symphony No. 4. The last movement of this popular work will feature the Korean soprano Jihee Kim, a young artist in the Yale Opera program. Two well-known pieces by Johannes Brahms comprise the first half of the concert: the Academic Festival Overture and Variations on a Theme of Haydn. MORE
