Brahms Serenade No. 1

Symphony Joslyn Series

Ryan McAdams, conductor
Nate Olson, double bass

LIGETI: Concerto Romanesque
MAZZOLI: Dark with Excessive Bright
BRAHMS: Serenade No. 1

San Francisco Symphony program annotator Michael Steinberg said, “If Brahms had called his enchanting
Serenade in D Major a symphony – and he almost did – we could be hearing it all the time.” Brahms
thunders, soars, and dances. You don’t know Ligeti until you’ve heard our opener, a playful, explosive
ode to his Romanian roots, and contemporary composer Missy Mazzoli adds a thrilling, fresh work
to the double bass repertoire inspired by Milton’s Paradise Lost and a 400-year-old instrument.
