Bach & Mendelssohn: Grace and Grandeur

Baroque Splendor with Handel & Bach

Courtly dances and buoyant melodies take center stage in two Baroque favorites: Handel's Water Music and Bach's Keyboard Concerto in A Major, featuring the "extravagantly gifted" (LA Times) Awadagin Pratt. Equally enchanting and energetic, Haydn's “Drumroll” Symphony brims with humor and wit, building to a riotous finale where fleet-footed tunes race across every corner of the orchestra.

Mahler's 3: Nature Finds a Voice

"In it the whole of nature finds a voice," Mahler wrote of his Third Symphony. A work of immense scope and profound emotion in which the composer realizes his goal to "embrace everything" in his music, Mahler's Third is an expansive hymn to the primal life force that animates every flower in the meadow, animal in the forest, and the divine love that forever unites nature and humankind.
