Festival Finale: Mahler 5
Sat August 1, 2020 | 7:30 pm
Peter Oundjian, conductor
Mahler, Symphony No. 5
Leave it to Mahler to give us harrowing funeral marches shot through with blinding rays of hope. That is his epic Fifth Symphony: a masterpiece which, while not expressly telling a story, still whispers Mahler’s secrets about tragedy, joy, and love. Music Director Peter Oundjian closes the 2020 Festival with this dramatic journey through life, death, and everything in between — a symphony directly inspired by Beethoven, whose 250th birthday we celebrate this season.
