MAHLER

SYMPHONY OF A THOUSAND
I have spent 25 years with this Orchestra and Chorus.
In that time, our collaboration on Gustav Mahler’s
monumental Symphony No. 8 in 2005 stands out as
perhaps the most memorable. The sheer scale of the work,
the massing of enormous instrumental and vocal forces in
one epic experience is unforgettable. Our production will
comprise over four hundred artists on the Overture Hall
stage. The Symphony of a Thousand is revered as one of
the greatest achievements of classical concert repertoire
and expresses the composer’s confidence in the eternal
human spirit. I feel a magnetic affinity with Mahler, and
began my career 25 years ago with his first symphony.
I am honored and moved to conduct this work and feel
it is the perfect conclusion to my 25th season.
