ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Instantly arresting. Brazenly theatrical. Larger than life. To experience a Mahler symphony live is to know why it’s an experience unlike anything in all of art. In his Seventh Symphony, Mahler paints with every color in the orchestral palette—from clanging cowbell to strumming mandolin—to summon nocturnal worlds both nightmarish and serene, menacingly dark and lustrously moonlit. Night erupts into dazzling day in a riotous finale replete with blazing brass and pealing bells.
Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
