Mahler 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.

Bach & Mendelssohn: Grace and Grandeur

Adored for centuries for its heartwarming "Air on the G String," Bach's Third Orchestral Suite illuminates Baroque dance forms with radiant brass, thunderous timpani, and serenading strings. And Mendelssohn sings ecstatic hymns of praise in his Second Symphony, uniting choir and orchestra in a life-affirming call to "cast off the works of darkness and take up the armor of light."

Chopin and Alpine Symphony

Inspired by his own adventures in the Alps, Strauss' An Alpine Symphony evokes nature's power and majesty in a journey through crashing waterfalls, misty meadows, and furious storms. And Portland favorite Garrick Ohlsson leads an equally intense journey of the heart in Chopin's First Piano Concerto, channeling the work's melancholy grace with "a sound so lush it almost glistens" (Seattle Times).
