Houston Symphony presents Mendelssohn & Mahler
One note is worth a thousand words in this program of spellbinding choral works with a story to tell. First, witness the wings of genius take flight in Mahler’s staggering first masterpiece, written when he was just 18 - music that beckons us close to whisper ancient tales of gleaming castles, noble knights and magic flutes. Then, Goethe’s text ignites the fire of Mendelssohn’s imagination in a celebration of spring that sees Druids dance and bonfires burn.
Andrés Orozco-Estrada will be the conductor of this event.
