Our destination is the 19th century when music was all about grand emotions, big sounds, and pushing boundaries. Rooted in the Germanic musical tradition, Wagner’s poignant prelude and finale, extracted from his opera Tristan und Isolde, lays the foundation for an evening steeped in orchestral grandeur. Mahler’s Symphony No. 5, a testament to his admiration for Wagner, unfolds with daring chromaticism, pushing the boundaries of traditional tonality. The concert takes you on a rollercoaster of emotional intensity, from Wagner’s transcendent love and death theme to Mahler’s varied exploration, ranging from mournful funeral marches to triumphant finales. Witness the influence and evolution of these composers as Wagner’s innovations echo in Mahler’s adaptation of leitmotifs.

Join us for an evening that is all about feeling the music and discovering the heart and soul of the Romantic era.
