Spend a night out with powerful, dramatic romantic works.
Nearly 500 years ago, the Protestant Reformation rocked Europe – Mendelssohn dramatizes and pays tribute to this world-changing event in his Fifth Symphony. Brahms’ Second Symphony is packed with warm, joyful melodies that will sweep you off your feet.
