    Richard Wagner: Overture to Tannhäuser
    Béla Bartók: The Miraculous Mandarin (complete)
    Johannes Brahms: Symphony No. 1

    Channing Yu, conductor

    Romanticism struggles against anti-romanticism in an evening of contrasts, from Richard Wagner’s tale of a man’s struggle against his basest desires to attain spiritual redemption, to Béla Bartók’s grotesque, violent story of the supernatural powers of love in the face of malevolence, to Johannes Brahms’s triumphal entrance into the symphonic form. Also featuring members of the Seraphim Singers (Jennifer Lester, conductor).
