Shacklett concert preview: 6:30 pm
Aquinas Hall, Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, NY
Vaughan-Williams: The Songs of Travel (1-4)
Mahler: Songs of a Wayfarer
Mahler: Symphony No. 1
Gustav Mahler has become the most popular symphonist since Beethoven. His music routinely sells out concert halls throughout the world and yet he has remained absent from GNSO programs. This exhilarating musical offering combines Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer with his First Symphony, nicknamed, ‘Titan’. Both of these were composed concurrently and dip from the same musical well. To round out our roving adventures is another ode to the Romantic notion of the wandering artiste, Vaughan-Williams’ Songs of Travel.
