Romantic Classics Series – Concert 3

“Spiritual Temptation”

Carl Maria von Weber Overture to opera Der Freischütz
Johannes Brahms Double Concerto in A minor, op. 102
Symphony No. 3 in F major, op. 90


Born into a family of professional musicians, the Johnston brothers Guy and Magnus first began their musical training as choristers at King’s College. Magnus later switched to violin and Guy to cello; today, both of them are regarded as “new stars” on UK’s musical scene. Magnus was admitted as a finalist in the 1998 BBC Young Musician Competition and Guy won the title of BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2000. He has been hailed by The Strad as “one of the country’s most promising and distinctive cellists,” and in 2001 was invited to perform as soloist at the Proms Festival in the UK. The Johnston brothers’ performance of Brahms’ Double Concerto will enthrall Macao audiences for the very first time!
