Popular former VSO Resident Conductor Benjamin Rous, now Music Director of the Charlottesville Symphony and on faculty at the University of Virginia, returns to conduct this performance which includes Brahms’ majestically beautiful Symphony No. 3. Also on the program is Mozart’s Symphony No. 36 which Mozart wrote in the score that the fourth (and final) movement should be played “as fast as possible,” and thus is a breathtaking finish to an accomplished work.
