Join Music Director Gustavo Gimeno and the TSO as they return to the Roy Thomson Hall stage for an alluring live-stream performance of diverse and tuneful offerings. A playful symphony by 18th-century Black composer—and champion fencer—Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, opens the program. Brahms’s youthful energy and command of melody shine in a Serenade written when he was just 25 years old. Between these two musical gems, the TSO string section sings in Canadian Nathaniel Dett’s “His Song”, a soulful and poignant depiction of African American life in the early 1900s.
