Experience vivid music that spans two centuries in this stunning program led by Music Director Ludovic Morlot. Anchored by Brahms’ heartfelt First Symphony – a labor of love that took Brahms more than two decades to compose – this program also features the U.S. Premiere of Julian Anderson’s crackling poem for violin and orchestra, a Seattle Symphony co-commission.
Ask the Artist on Thursday, June 11, with Ludovic Morlot, Julian Anderson and Carolin Widmann. Morlot will sign CDs after the concert on Saturday, June 13, and Sunday, June 14.

The French conductor Ludovic Morlot has been Music Director of the Seattle Symphony since 2011. Amongst the many highlights of his tenure, the orchestra has won two Grammy Awards and gave an exhilarating performance at Carnegie Hall in 2014, as reported in the The New York Times: “The performance Mr. Morlot coaxed from his players was rich with shimmering colors and tremulous energy.”
Violinist Carolin Widmann was born in Munich and studied with Igor Ozim in Cologne, Michèle Auclair in Boston and David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
