The first concert of the season launches with two works by the great masters: Dvořák and Mahler. Dvořák's Cello Concerto is the pinnacle of expression for the instrument most like the human voice. Exploring some of the cello's most expressive and beautiful qualities, Dvořák shows his compositional prowess in this piece performed by Spanish cellist Adolfo Gutierrez Arenas. On hearing Mahler's Fifth Symphony, prepare to forget that time has passed. The symphony begins with a rhythmic motive reminiscent of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. It progresses from tragedy to triumph in the stirring fifth movement.
