Guest conductor David Robertson makes his TSO debut leading Mahler’s tempestuous Fifth Symphony, with its movements of darkness and light, triumphant horn fanfares, and ebullient fugues. Ardent Mahler admirer Alban Berg’s romantic and expressive compilation of seven art songs, written in his youth, opens the program, featuring one of the TSO’s 2023/24 Spotlight Artists, the exquisite Canadian mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo.
This concert replaces the performance previously titled Michael Tilson Thomas Conducts Mahler. No action is needed by ticket holders–your tickets will be honoured for the same date.
