The acclaimed CCM Philharmonia opens its fall concert series with a celebration of the works of Johannes Brahms and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky on Friday, Sept. 12.

Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Timothy Lees and principal cellist Ilya Finkelshteyn join the CCM Philharmonia for a performance of Brahms’ Concerto for Violin and Cello during this concert.

Music director and conductor Mark Gibson recently explained to the Cincinnati Enquirer: “I’ve been fascinated by this relationship between Brahms and Tchaikovsky for a long time. They were drinking buddies and hated each other.”

The CCM Philharmonia’s concert on Sept. 12 and the CCM Concert Orchestra’s concert on Sept. 19 both promise to explore the relationship between these “strange bedfellows.”

Learn more about these concerts in the Enquirer‘s Fall Arts Preview.
