Madison Symphony Maestro John DeMain plays Brahms Intermezzos and shares reflections about music.


Music Director John DeMain shares performances of Brahms Intermezzos and thoughts of music, the orchestra — “what we live for” . . . “that collective response” . . . and why people find live classical music food for the soul. This is part of our “Home Is Where the Art Is” series of stories from our maestro and artists.

The story opens with the Brahms Intermezzo Op. 118 No. 1 (2 minute performance), then continues with John speaking about music and life in these times, and concludes with a 2 and a half minute performance of the Brahms Intermezzo Op. 118 No. 2 (starting at 7:04). The total run time is 9 minutes, 30 seconds.
