The performance is intended to introduce young people to instruments in the orchestra through the guise of a humorous and thrilling mystery, keeping both children and adults immersed in the action.

Songs of the Earth Program:
Twilight of the Himalayas (2012-13) World Premiere
The Last Paradise for Violin and Orchestra (1993)
The Song of the Earth (2005)
The resonance of Twilight of the Himalayas is a sound that has reached few ears. Violinist Cho-Liang Lin demonstrates the breathtaking virtuosity of The Last Paradise. And The Song of the Earth is a setting of the original texts, which Mahler only knew in translation.
