Brahms’ Second Symphony

The extraordinary artistry of violinist Vadim Gluzman illustrates the multicultural influences in Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2. A summer holiday led to the creation of Brahms’ famous Second Symphony, often called his “Pastoral.” 

“The number of places in which I wrote the Concerto shows the kind of nomadic concert-tour life I led then. The main theme of the 1st movement was written in Paris, the first theme of the 2nd movement at Voronezh, the orchestration was finished in Baku and the premiere was given in Madrid.” —Sergei Prokofiev
