Brahms Meet Haydn at QNCC
This concert promises an evening of Brahms, including Haydn Variations and Symphony No. 2 in D Major. Haydn Variations was written in 1873 and is a testimony to Brahms’ mastery of the technique of variation. The variations are based on a simple theme that was thought to be of Joseph Haydn’s composition at the time, though we now know this attribution was incorrect. Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 in D Major is one of the most cheerful of his mature works, and its happy nature could be because it was composed during a summer holiday in 1877 while living on the shores of an Austrian lake.
