- Mahler Symphony No. 3, 102′
A weekend of starry international orchestras continues with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and its Music Director Andris Nelsons. They bring with them another American star, mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, as soloist in Mahler’s Third Symphony. The sunniest and most joyful of all the composer’s symphonies, this musical world teems with life, recreating the ‘tumult’ of human existence – from bird calls to marches, dances and songs – in its broad scope. The Boston Symphony Orchestra is joined by the CBSO Chorus and CBSO Youth Chorus.
There will be no interval in this concert.
