What's Interesting

  • The 125th Anniversary season ends with the music Gustav Mahler heard when he put his ear to the world. The symphony’s movements have illustrative titles like “What the Flowers in the Meadow Tell Me,” and “What Love Tells Me.”
  • The CSO gave the U.S. premiere of Mahler’s Third Symphony in 1914, foreshadowing the Orchestra's important commitment to performing contemporary music of the day.
  • You can say you heard it here first: a new work from Julia Adolphe, whose music has been described as “alive with invention” (The New Yorker).
