The last musical event to attend is ‘Brahms’s double Concerto: Macao Orchestra. With their unique styles, Schubert and Brahms are both revered as the greatest masters of Austrian-German symphony music of the 19th century, fully displaying the spirit of Romanticism: a movement in arts and literature that emphasizes inspiration, subjectivity and the primacy of an individual. In this concert, Macao Orchestra presents, on one hand, Brahms’s ‘Double Concerto for Violin and Cello in A minor’, the composer’s last concertante work, which features a mature technique and conveys deep emotions. On the other hand, Schubert’s ‘Symphony No. 4’, a work that carries the composer’s sadness and thoughts at the young age of 19. Bear witness to this grand occasion that seeks classical music. We are excited to know which one is likely to touch you more: Brahms’s late blossoming or the wisdom of the young Schubert!
