- Mahler’s Third Symphony was premiered in the U.S in 1914 by the CSO. The symphony’s movements have illustrative titles like “What the Flowers in the Meadow Tell Me,” and “What Love Tells Me.”
- Mahler used text from Friedrich Nietzsche’s Also sprach Zarathustra: “The world is deep, and deeper than the day has thought.”
- A new work from Julia Adolphe, whose music has been described as “alive with invention” (The New Yorker), proves we are ever looking forward.
