Program:
Mahler: Symphony No. 3 in D Minor

The season reaches an awesome climax with Gustav Mahler’s most all-embracing composition. On the vast canvas of Symphony No. 3, he painted a soul-stirring hymn to nature in all its miraculous facets. He wrote, “My piece…begins at the heart of inanimate nature and ascends to the love of God.” A mezzo-soprano soloist and a choir of women and boys give extra luster to this stunning, not-to-be-missed event!

 Prelude with Christopher Purdy
