About The Performance
Experience a unique take on an all-Mahler program courtesy of The Philadelphia Orchestra. The concert begins with selected works by Alma Mahler, featuring mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill—who audiences recently enjoyed as soloist in the orchestra’s performance of Beethoven’s Missa solemnis. Only a small number of Alma Mahler’s songs survive, and they are regrettably underperformed, although noteworthy both musically and historically. The orchestra then takes audiences on the symphonic journey that is Gustav Mahler’s Seventh, a monumental piece that reveals new interpretive shades with every performance.
