CLEAR ALL

Sunday, May 17 at 2 p.m. (EDT) - It is well known that Johannes Brahms played a big part in the international fame that came to Antonin Dvořák after he submitted his work for the Austrian State Stipendium. But it is much lesser known that Brahms was “visibly overcome by the mastery and talent of this unknown individual.” This tremendous pairing in friendship is analogous when pairing their music and their inventive, beautiful melodies that were seemingly endless. The concert, conducted by Maj. Michelle A. Rakers, will include two works by Brahms and two solo works by Dvořák: his Violin Concerto in A minor, Opus 53, featuring soloist Staff Sgt. Karen Johnson, and his Rondo in G minor, Opus 94 and Silent Woods from From Bohemia’s Forest, Opus 68, featuring cello soloist Staff Sgt. Charlaine Prescott. The performance, which will be held at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center in Alexandria, Va., is free and no tickets are required. - Sunday, May 17 at 2 p.m. (EDT) - It is well known that Johannes Brahms played a big part in the international fame that came to Antonin Dvořák after he submitted his work for the Austrian State Stipendium.
