Music Director Candidate Finalist Fawzi Haimor leads a program of two works from the Romantic era featuring the talents of Cleveland International Piano Competition Gold Medalist, Martina Filjak, in her New West Symphony debut. It marks the Symphony’s first performance of American composer Edward MacDowell’s virtuosic, Liszt-inspired Piano Concerto No. 2. Johannes Brahms, always under the shadow of Beethoven, took 14 years to complete his majestic First Symphony. Brahms could not escape the shadow entirely, and the symphony with its soaring final movement chorale has often been called the Beethoven 10th.
