Brahms's popular Violin Concerto with violinist Lisa Batiashvili meets a long-lost new discovery. The First Symphony by French Romantic composer Louise Farrenc will be featured on the program. Just last year, Yannick Nézet-Séguin performed works by the long-forgotten composer in Baden-Baden – and kindled enthusiastic applause as listeners realized that a neglected genius is now being rediscovered. The journey of discovery continues, this time with the composer's First Symphony.
