Oundjian Conducts Mahler Nine
Mahler Symphony No9
When Gustav Mahler wrote his Ninth Symphony, he knew that he was living on borrowed time. But that wasn’t going to hold him back, and he poured everything he had into some of the most poignant, powerful and heartfelt music ever written. As he brings the 17:18 Season to a close, RSNO Music Director Peter Oundjian guides us through a glowing world of hymn tunes, Viennese waltzes, half-remembered songs and distant trumpets – before the sun sets on Mahler’s very own last word. Unforgettable.
