REACTIONS TO THE RECORD IV: Nineteenth-Century Brahms

This is an Archive of a Past Event

Nineteenth-Century Brahms will present a concert of Brahms' powerful music, including the Piano Quintet in F Minor, Op. 34, played as it is not heard these days, in the authentic styles of the 19th century. The Ironwood Ensemble has made a name for itself with cutting-edge work reviving stylistic practices that scholars argue were preferred by Brahms, but which have disappeared since. Stanford faculty performers George Barth, Stephen Harrison, and Kumaran Arul also take the challenge of the historical evidence to suggest new ways of hearing the great composer. This event is part of the Reactions to the Record IV symposium and is free to the public with registration. | The Ironwood Ensemble will discuss this performance and their work at the Reactions to the Record IV 2:00 pm session, offering a demonstration, workshop, and discussion.
