With Music Director Eric Jacobsen and the Orlando Philharmonic, Concertmaster Rimma Bergeron-Langlois executes the technical fireworks of Brahms’s exuberant Violin Concerto; and his Second Symphony dazzles with brasses ablaze in the finale. Woven in between, movements of Symphony No. 2 by African-American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk (“the first eloquent and authentic spokesman of the New World,” contemporary critics raved)– a sneak preview of the symphony they’ll be recording later this season.
