Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ
Piet Heinkade 1
1019 BR Amsterdam

On February 3, Johannes Leertouwer presents the Brahms Project Orchestra, conducted by Johannes Leertouwer himself. The concert is organised following the PhD research by Johannes about Brahms.

Brahms - Double concerto in A minor opus 102
Alexander Janiczek, violin, Philip Higham, cello
Brahms - Symphony no. 1 C minor opus 68

In his PhD research at Leiden University violinist and conductor Johannes Leertouwer researches the performance practice of Brahms’ orchestral music in the nineteenth century. The central question of Johannes’ research is: Are there elements of the lost performance practice of the nineteenth century that we can rediscover and use to shed new light on the performance of Brahms’ music for orchestra today?
