Why an entire concert of Mahler? For the listeners, Mahler is like looking into a mirror, asking questions about our lives and trying to find answers. Mahler’s music encompasses the vast spectrum of human emotion. For the WSO musicians, Mahler is always an event. Every player and every section has a chance to shine! Mahler’s music covers the whole range of what an instrument can do individually and in an ensemble. Performing Mahler’s first symphony was on the bucket lists of many WSO musicians, so this will take us all on a journey of “Titan” proportions!
