Mahler’s First Symphony is an adventure in extremes. It was originally written for an orchestra of nearly 100 musicians and named after “The Titan,” an epic German novel depicting a passionate youth in his ascension to mature hero. Mahler’s Titan takes music in extreme directions, including a riff on the children’s song “Frere Jacques” that sounds like a funeral dirge and treats the orchestra like a klezmer band in one movement. We also welcome violinist Yevgeny Kutik, praised by the New York Times for his “rich, sweet tone,” to perform Bruch’s beautiful and popular First Violin Concerto.
