Mahler: Symphony No. 9
Gustav Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 9 is essential listening in the Classical repertoire. One of his last compositions, the work was born out of a sense of finality as he had recently been diagnosed with a terminal heart condition.
A deeply personal composition, the symphony displays all that Mahler did best, from emotional melodies to lush harmonies to large-scale structures, and despite the large orchestration, the work moves seamlessly between intimate sensuality and grand majesty.
Prelude: Join Music Director Rossen Milanov for a pre-concert talk starting at 6:30pm.
