Shinik Hahm leads the Yale Philharmonia in two works of Richard Strauss and the Fourth Symphony of Brahms on Thursday, November 18

The Yale School of Music presents the Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale and conductor-in-residence Shinik Hahm on Thursday, November 18 at 8 pm in Woolsey Hall (corner of College and Grove Streets, New Haven). The program features the music of Richard Strauss and Johannes Brahms.

Strauss’s tone poem Don Juan opens the evening, led by Adrian Slywotzky, a conducting fellow at the School of Music. The piece depicts the exploits of Don Juan, the same storyline that Yale Opera will explore in its winter production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Oboist Carl Oswald, a winner of the Woolsey Concerto Competition, will join the orchestra for Strauss’s Oboe Concerto in D major. Strauss wrote the concerto for John De Lancie, a GI stationed in Germany after World War II who in civilian life had played oboe in the Pittsburgh Orchestra – and who later would serve for 30 years as principal oboe of the Philadelphia Orchestra. The concert will conclude with Brahms’s Symphony No. 4 in E minor, considered by many one of the composer’s greatest masterpieces. Despite its dark tone, the work was acclaimed from its very first performance in 1885 and has been enormously popular ever since.

Admission to the performance is free. MORE
