Experience Mahler's glorious Fifth Symphony, regarded as one of his crowning achievements, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas. Opening with a dramatic trumpet solo and featuring the hauntingly beautiful Adagietto for strings and harp, the symphony moves from mourning to triumph, reflecting a joyful period in the composer’s life. Also on the program, experience Gil Shaham's "formidable technique as well as a big, singing tone and a sunny disposition" (The New York Times) in Berg's Violin Concerto.
