Champaign-Urbana Symphony: The Beauty of Brahms

Stephen Alltop, music director and conductor
Elissa Lee Koljonen, violin

Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra begins the season with exciting new sounds and old musical friends. The brilliantly talented Elissa Lee Koljonen returns to the Foellinger Great Hall stage to perform the mesmerizing Violin Concerto by the Persian composer Bezhad Ranjbaran. First championed by violinist Joshua Bell, this concerto has been praised for its exotic sounds and lustrous harmonies. The Symphony No. 1 of Brahms is among the composer’s most beloved works. Its big-shouldered and majestic outer movements are contrasted by the singing lyricism of its inner movements. Join CUSO for a night of memorable music-making!
