FABIO LUISI conducts
JEREMY DENK piano
ANNA CLYNE ATLAS | World Premiere
MAHLER Symphony No. 5
For intense emotions and radiant beauty, nothing can surpass Mahler’s Fifth. A movement marked “tempestuously. With great vehemence” stands alongside the achingly beautiful Adagietto — a gift to his beloved wife Alma — scored for strings and harp alone, a kind of “resting place” before the grand drama of the finale. The legendary conductor Herbert von Karajan called the Symphony “a transformative experience.” Coupled with the world premiere of Anna Clyne’s visceral and arresting Piano Concerto, this concert will have the emotional depth and range of the DSO on full display.
