Boston Philharmonic: Mahler's Ninth
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.
