Concerts & Events

The 2022–23 line-up is a smorgasbord of musical styles. By broadening the usual orchestral palette, these programs offer a greater range of expression, more opportunities for storytelling, and a heightened sense of discovery. A telling irony is that much of the aesthetic diversity comes from a single country: America. Several works examine the idea of Americanness through the contrasting perspectives of their composers.

Mahler’s Third

Akron, OH 44325 United States

Mahler’s Third is his “Pastorale Symphony.” It seems propelled throughout by nature’s bald power. The opening march represents the arrival of spring in the Austrian Alps—the earth groans, giant ice sheets crack, and cataracts spill forth from mountain streams. The middle movements moves in stages up the Great Chain of Being, from raw matter, through many varieties of forms of life, and ultimately to the realm of the spirit.
