Paul Nadler guest-conducts a concert full of beloved Romantic period masterpieces, including Johannes Brahms’ powerful step into the symphonic world with his Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68. From the booming timpani roll at the outset, you will be drawn into this meticulously crafted work. Czech composer Antonín Dvořák drew inspiration from Brahms’ compositions and wrote his 16 piece work Slavonic Dances, Op. 46, in response to Brahms’ Hungarian Dances. Originally written for four-hand piano, Dvořák’s Slavonic Danses encapsulate his ability to create original melodies over traditional Slavonic folk rhythms. Nadler will also conduct the ever-resonate Rosamunde Overture by Franz Schubert.
Nadler is an exciting and highly respected symphonic and operatic conductor whose career has taken him to over fifty cities on three continents. Since his Metropolitan Opera debut in 1989 he has led the company in more than 60 productions. Maestro Nadler is beloved in Southwest Florida, and the Gulf Coast Symphony is honored to have him guest-conduct.
Program: Shubert Rosamunde Overture; Dvořák Symphonic Dances Op. 46 Nos. 1, 3 & 8 and Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 in c minor, Op. 68.

Johannes Brahms (7 May 1833 – 3 April 1897) was a German composer and pianist of the Romantic period. Born in Hamburg into a Lutheran family, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria. His reputation and status as a composer is such that he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the “Three Bs” of music, a comment originally made by the nineteenth-century conductor Hans von Bülow.
Antonín Dvořák (born September 8, 1841, Nelahozeves, Bohemia, Austrian Empire [now in Czech Republic]—died May 1, 1904, Prague), first Bohemian composer to achieve worldwide recognition, noted for turning folk material into 19th-century Romantic music.
