April is an exciting month for both visiting orchestras and the music of Mahler, with several notable ensembles coming through Carnegie Hall performaning of Mahler’s greatest symphonies.
Among several intriguing concerts, both trends will meet at a point this Saturday at Carnegie, when Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will play both Mahler and new American music. On the program is Mahler’s wild, pivotal Symphony No. 5. As a companion, the orchestra will present the New York premiere of Kevin Puts’ The City. Puts, a Pulitzer Prize winner, composes lovely orchestral music, and The City will be accompanied by a film made by James Bartolomeo.
The Baltimore Symphony and Marin Alsop perform 8 p.m. Saturday, April 16. carnegiehall.org
