Description: Acclaimed soprano Nina Stemme joins the Swedish Chamber Orchestra for a single performance as the final concert of Lincoln Center's 2012-2013 Great Performers season. Thomas Dausgaard conducts the concert which, in the first half of the program, breaks with the usual format by alternating song and orchestral selections into a continuous musical stream. Ms. Stemme offers orchestral songs by Grieg, Sibelius, Wagner, Weill, Berlioz, Schubert and Richard Strauss that are interwoven with the orchestra's performance of works by Beethoven, Elgar, Brahms and Ravel and others, all focused on the theme of "Love, Hope and Destiny." The second half of the program features Brahms' Symphony No. 1.
