    Schumann              Symphony No. 4

    Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing welcomes Norman Krieger, one of the most acclaimed pianists of his generation, to perform Brahms’s towering and notoriously challenging Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor. Brahms’s trusted friend and mentor Robert Schumann wrote his Symphony No. 4 in D-minor in 1841 but continued to revise it until 1851, as the phantasmagoric states of mind which accompanied his descent into madness took hold.

    Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen illness, guest pianist Peter Serkin has cancelled his appearance with the San Antonio Symphony for this weekend’s Symphony Brahms concert. In his replacement, we have commissioned the great pianist Norman Krieger who has agreed to take on the performance as scheduled.  Program will remain the same.  If you have any questions, please call the Box Office at (210) 223-8624.
