About this event

After waiting nearly 25 years, SPM will once more set out to scale the exalted heights of Mahler’s monumental Symphony No. 5, one of the towering achievements of his unique genius. This broadly conceived five-movement work covers the entirety of human existence from the archly tragic opening funeral march to the heavenly Adagietto for harp and strings, a love letter to the composer’s beloved wife Alma. Although Mahler struggled with the work and revised it numerous times, feeling that its time was 50 years into the future, one early admirer of the work deeply understood it’s meaning: “This Fifth Symphony of his carried me through every world of feeling. I heard in it the relation of adult man to everything that lives, heard him cry to mankind out of his loneliness, to home, to God, saw him lying prostrate, heard him laugh his defiance and felt his calm triumph. For the first time in my life a work of art made me weep, a strange sense of contrition came over me which almost brought me to my knees.” There is no doubt that each member of SPM will conjure their every musical and emotional resource in sharing this work with you! As a lovely and much more innocent prelude to the symphony, we present Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate with another captivating rising star of classical music, soprano Yeonjae Cho, who will charm and excite you with her exquisite vocal artfulness.

There will be a preconcert talk 45 minutes prior to the performance
