Monumental Mahler & Mozart

Epic. Bold. Monumental. Gustavo Gimeno’s inaugural season begins with Mahler’s thundering First Symphony, music that thrills with its hero’s journey from stark desolation to final, resounding triumph. These performances also mark the commencement of a full Mahler cycle: all nine of the composer’s symphonies will be conducted by Maestro Gimeno over the course of five seasons. Astounding Canadian mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo—who recently took the opera world by storm in the Metropolitan Opera’s production of La clemenza di Tito—and music by Canadian composer and TSO 2020/21 Artist in Residence Samy Moussa launch a momentous concert season that is not to be missed.

This concert is available in the Wednesday 2, Thursday 2, Saturday 2, and Sunday Matinee fixed-seat subscription packages.

A Note from Gustavo Gimeno

“For my first concert as Music Director of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, I have selected a work very close to my heart in Mahler Symphony No. 1. It’s one of the first pieces of classical music I ever listened to as a child, and was one of the pieces that inspired me to become a conductor. The concert also includes arias of Mozart and music by our new TSO Artist in Residence, Samy Moussa, offering a vibrant and refreshing mix of styles and time periods.”
