Like Beethoven’s Ninth which inspired it, Mahler’s massive Second Symphony explodes the symphonic genre. The monumental sweep of this groundbreaking soundscape miraculously encompasses life, death, and resurrection. Carlos Kalmar conducts with Tamara Wilson, soprano, and Elizabeth DeShong, mezzo soprano. An epic way to end the 120th Anniversary Season! Concerts Saturday May 20 at 7:30 pm, Sunday May 21 at 2:00 pm, and Monday May 22 at 7:00 pm, all at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Portland.
