About Asheville Symphony Brahms Piano No 2


 
For the uninitiated, a little background to bring them up to date on the history of Asheville Symphony is in order. The Asheville Symphony Orchestra is a world renowned professional enterprise based out of Asheville, North Carolina, United States of America. The origin of the opera pre-dates the depression era in the United States. It was around the early to mid 1920’s that the first organizer Lamar Stringfield started the whole initiative. At that time, it was not known by its current name. In fact, it was a one off exhibition concert in the year 1927. But it was so popular and well received that it went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for the musical score in ‘From the Southern Mountains’ in 1928.

 
This was to be followed up by the founding of the North Carolina Symphony in Chapel Hill in the year 1932. But the Great Depression hit the economy deeply and there would be no more revival of the opera for the next two decades and more. In the year 1958 an application for the incorporation for the Asheville Symphony Society was filed. It would not be till the year 1960 though, that the Asheville Symphony would be established with its first concert playing in 1961. It would be another six years before finally they would become a professional entity in 1967. The first resident conductor Robert Hart Baker led the orchestra from the year 1980 till 2004 after which he was succeeded by Daniel Meyer.
 
The Asheville Symphony plays Brahm’s piano no. 2 this time and it is an event not to be missed at any cost. This is a composition for solo piano with a background orchestra. It was composed by Johannes Brahms and its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is separated from Brahms first piano concerto by a period of 22 years. The composition took him three years to finish starting from the year 1878 and ending in 1881. At the end Brahm dedicated his magnum opus to his teacher Eduard Marxsen.

 
The composition had a successful debut in Budapest on November 9, 1881. Brahm himself played as a soloist in the concert. What sets it apart is its use of instruments in a set pattern, so that there are two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets in B-flat, two bassoons, two horns- at the start two are in B-flat bass and two in F- 2 trumpets- B flat again- timpani in B-flat and F and strings. However, in a unique twist, the trumpets and timpani only come into play during the initial two movements.

 
There are a total of four movements which goes against the convention of the Classical and Romantic periods both of which have three movements. But it is such unique additions that breathe fresh life into music. And it is precisely for this reason that this chance to witness one of music’s greatest acts should not be missed.
