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

Quotes & Highlights
KODO got great Goldstar reviews at Washington’s DAR Constitution Hall.
“…the discipline of a surgeon’s scalpel with the primitive, muscular endurance of a cavalry charge. The speed and dexterity are as impressive as the physical tenacity is breathtaking.” —Chicago Tribune
Since its debut at the Berlin Festival in 1981, KODO has given over 3,300 performances on five continents and has introduced countless audiences to its peaceful, world-centered vision. The word ‘Kodo’ is a homonym for ‘heartbeat’ — humanity’s most fundamental source of rhythm — the first sound a child hears in its mother’s womb. The taiko drum, in the hands of a master drummer, has an almost astounding organic power. Feel the primal energy of KODO!
