Brahms' Academic Festival Overture - La Jolla Symphony and Chorus

published 1 month ago by UCTV

Brahms' "Academic Festival Overture," which the composer offhandedly characterized as "a potpourri of student songs," features an unusual treatment of standard sonata form. What emerges is one of those rarities in classical music: a fun piece, full of antic humor, that invites the listener to laugh along with the composer. Series: "La Jolla Symphony & Chorus" [Show ID: 35725]
