Brahms: Symphony No. 1

Leonard Bernstein once exclaimed, “The work I have been writing all my life is about the struggle that is born of the crisis of our century: a crisis of faith.” With the “Jeremiah” Symphony, Bernstein began a musical exploration of his religious faith that would inspire many of his serious compositions. Johannes Brahms experienced his own crisis while composing his monumental First Symphony – that of escaping the shadow of Beethoven. Experience how these struggles gave way to two modern classics with Tito Muñoz and The Phoenix Symphony.
