Concert Description

Gustav Mahler said “A symphony must be like the world. It must contain everything.” In Mahler’s Ninth and final full symphony, he created a world bridging the spaces between life, fate, and joy. It also takes its place among the “final ninths” of Beethoven, Schubert, and Dvořák; a musical autobiography reliving his exploration of love, longing, beauty, and inevitably, death, eventually fading away into the ether as a final farewell.
