French violinist Renaud Capuçon, guest soloist in the Brahms Violin Concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra this week, observes: “From my early years, he was always a composer I dreamed of playing. When you hear Brahms or you play Brahms, you feel better. It’s something that nourishes you.”

In this short video, Capuçon and the CSO, under guest conductor Semyon Bychkov, perform the concerto’s finale. The program repeats at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 9 and 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13 at Symphony Center, with an additional performance Oct. 10 at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in Champaign-Urbana.
