MAHLER SYMPHONY NO. 1, “THE TITAN”
Saturday, July 22 – 7:30 PM | Whittington-Pfohl Auditorium

BMC Artistic Director Keith Lockhart continues his cycle of Mahler symphonies with the one that started it all, “The Titan.” Arguably the greatest first symphony ever written, Mahler continues the Romantic traditions of Beethoven, Brahms, and Bruckner, while injecting the modern ideas of Liszt and Wagner. The result is an exciting and masterful work that firmly celebrates the heroic, and delivers one of the most epic concert endings ever heard. Jeremy Denk opens the concert with Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto, one of the pinnacles of the concerto repertoire. The public premiere took place at one of the most famous concerts in music history, which also witnessed the premieres of the Choral Fantasy, as well as the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies.
