Orchestra Hall
2 hours

Mahler built his Fourth Symphony around his own song “The Heavenly Life,” which borrows text from a Bavarian folk poem. “The angelic voices gladden our senses,” the poem proclaims, “so that everything awakens for joy.” Mahler’s sunniest symphony features bells, harp, and woodwinds; in keeping with the lightness of the work, Mahler insists the soprano perform “with childlike, cheerful expression.” 

Guest conductor Jader Bignaminiwho stepped in for Leonard Slatkin to conduct Puccini’s Turandot to close the DSO’s 2017-2018 seasonreturns to lead this program, which also includes Bruch’s Violin Concerto in the hands of DSO violinist Yoonshin Song.

The sensitivity and excitement with which the orchestra responded illustrated the communication and cooperation Bignamini elicited from the musicians. ”
