Music in 3D #7: The BSO Plays Mahler’s Fifth

April 05, 2020

Don't miss Mahler's amazing Fifth Symphony or the MNSOTA Mary West Solo Competition winner in this season finale!

Show starts at 3:00 pm

Advance tickets are $15 each for adults, $12 for seniors 62+ and free for students. Discounts are also available for music/flex package purchasers.

Certain works are hallmarks of accomplishment for any orchestra and Gustav Mahler's Fifth Symphony in C Sharp minor is chief among them. The piece begins with a somber trumpet call that eventually gives way to a Viennese Waltz, then a sweet Adagietto and finally a merry fugue to bring the grand symphony to a triumphant close. Along the way there are immense technical challenges, musical heights to scale and some moments of unrivaled tenderness. This season closing concert also features the grand prize winner of the MNSOTA Mary West Solo Competition.
