Mahler 6

Saturday, April 27, 2024 7:30pm

Event Description

Part of the Brown-Forman Foundation Classics Series
Mahler himself declared he was ahead of his time musically.  Well, the world has caught up. Experience the musical wonder that is a Mahler symphony with Teddy Abrams and the LO. His Symphony No. 6 has enigmatically been nicknamed “Tragic” – but not by the composer.  It is, however, admittedly by Mahler, a very personal expression of his own life – a life that frequently fluctuated between immense joy and melancholy. You won’t want to miss witnessing what “dropping the hammer” can mean in classical music or this composer’s romantic and emotional look at life.

Concert Program:

MAHLER Symphony No. 6 in A minor, “Tragic”

I. Allegro energico, ma non troppo

II. Andante moderato

III. Scherzo I

IV. Finale
