Our final concert of the season features Mahler’s monumental Fifth Symphony. This iconic work, with its characteristic mix of joy and upheaval, speaks to the uncertainties of our times. It also includes the exquisite Adagietto, a musical love letter to his wife that will touch your heart. We’ve paired Mahler’s masterpiece with Haydn’s Symphony No. 88, one of his most buoyant and popular symphonies.
Francesco Lecce-Chong, Conductor
