“It is as though one lay in springtime among the blossoming flowers, and joy and sorrow filled one’s soul in turn,” said Clara Schumann upon hearing the beginning of Brahms’ Fourth Symphony. Guest conductor David Danzmayr leads this transcendent symphony as well as Saint-Saëns’ dazzlingly energetic Second Piano Concerto, performed here by one of the best pianists of his generation, Stewart Goodyear. The program opens with Jessie Montgomery’s Strum, which the Washington Post declared to be “turbulent, wildly colorful and exploding with life.”
