Mahler Symphony 6
Tobin Stokes: Sesquie for Canada 150
In Mahler’s emotionally devastating Sixth Symphony, he looked back nostalgically at bygone innocence, included a sweeping, ecstatic theme to represent his adored wife, Alma, and ultimately felt the harsh hammer blows of fate. Donald Runnicles, General Music Director of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, brings decades of experience in late-Romantic music to this powerful score. (Pictured: Donald Runnicles, conductor)
