This year marks the 100th anniversary of Johannes Brahms’ death, so don’t be surprised to find a preponderance of his works scheduled in the coming months. Tonight, the Philadelphia Orchestra, under the baton of Wolfgang Sawallisch, accompanies pianist Andre Watts (whose preference for strapless Dior gowns—oops, that was Anne-Sophie Mutter, who canceled due to illness) in the Piano Concerto No. 2. At 7 p.m. at DAR Constitution Hall, 18th & D Sts. NW. $29.50-54.50. (202) 628-4780. (Amy Domingues)
