Last month, the Symphony announced that guest conductor Thomas Dausgaard will take over for the current (and beloved) music director, Ludovic Morlot, in 2019, so this will be your first chance to see him play the orchestra with a newfound sense of ownership and commitment. This suite of pastoral pieces from Brahms will be a good place to start, and the music, which Brahms described as "all blue sky, babbling of streams, sunshine and cool green shade" will be a bright spot in dreary January.
