Philharmonic to perform Brahms’ mini masterpiece

Philharmonic to perform Brahms’ mini masterpiece

Eric Benjamin conducts the Tuscarawas Philharmonic.


The Tuscarawas Philharmonic will present the fourth concert of its “Intermezzo” season with a virtual performance on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Viewers are invited to join the orchestra on its website at, on YouTube or on Facebook to enjoy Johannes Brahms’ miniature masterpiece, “Serenade No. 1 in D, Op. 11.”

Written in 1858, this multi-movement chamber piece serves as a precursor to the composer’s later iconic orchestral and choral compositions. Scored for a nonet of winds and strings, the socially distanced orchestra will perform three of the six movements: “Allegro,” “Menuetto” and the “Rondo,” under the baton of maestro Eric Benjamin.

As with previous concerts from the orchestra’s virtual “Intermezzo” season, Tuscarawas Philharmonic will partner with Tuscarawas County music teachers to provide this season’s performances as an online venue for classroom learning.

This concert is made possible through contributions from Season Sponsor, ProVia; Guarantors, Chevron, The Max and Jane Krantz Foundation, James and Linda Angel Rice, and Tuscarawas County Community Foundation; Sponsor, Krugliak, Wilkins, Griffiths & Dougherty Co. LPA; and Co-Sponsors, Bill and Chris Emley and Peggy Pritz.
