Mahler’s Symphony No. 5

Our season concludes with Mahler's Fifth Symphony, a work of vast emotional scope that moves from grief to jubilation and includes the composer's famous Adagietto — a love song to his future wife, Alma, tenderly scored for strings and harp. Principal Flute Martha Long brings sparkling grace to Mozart's playful Flute Concerto in G Major.
