From Sorrow to Celebration: Mahler 5 at the Saroyan
Friday, June 24, 8 p.m.
Grief and loss are transformed through the power of love into joy and jubilation.
In Gustav Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, the composer delivered a heartfelt love letter to his future wife. While reaching for emotion which went beyond words, he also stepped beyond the voice-centered works of his youth and into a new realm of purely instrumental music.
But first, Maurice Ravel comes to terms with the realization that the society he admires has a dark side, and that its enchanting culture comes with a tragic human cost, in La Valse.
Join the FOOSA Philharmonic at the Saroyan Theatre on this epic journey from darkness into light.
