The Boston Phil celebrates its 35th anniversary -- and Maestro Benjamin Zander's 75th birthday -- with the signature piece that launched the orchestra itself, Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 9. In fact, since that first performance of the work under Zander's baton in 1978, he's become famous for his interpretation of the composer's final major piece, and was nominated for a Grammy for his recording of it with the London Philharmonia Orchestra. Created in 1909-10 after the death of his daughter and his own diagnosis of a heart ailment, Mahler's Ninth is known for its moving exploration of mortality that concludes on a quietly hopeful note. Come early to learn more about one of the maestro's most beloved favorites at the pre-concert lecture. Learn More

Chef, author, and raconteur Anthony Bourdain is best known for traveling the globe on his stomach, daringly consuming some of the world’s most exotic dishes on his hit TV shows Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations_ and_ The Layover.

His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Times of London, Bon Appetit, Gourmet and many other publications.

He has been profiled by CBS Sunday Morning_ and Nightline_, and has been a guest on _The Late Show with David Letterman, Morning Joe, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Daily Show, Charlie Rose, The Colbert Report, and Real Time with Bill Maher.
