Grammy award winning Mezzo-Soprano Kelley O’Connor and Tenor Richard Cox headline Gustav Mahler’s magnificent “Das Lied von der Erde.” Inspired by the earthly beauty and transience of six ancient Chinese poems on which the work is based, Mahler described the work as a “symphony in songs.” Also on the program is Claude Debussy’s orchestral work “Nocturnes” for orchestra and chorus, inspired by James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s series of Impressionist paintings by the same title.
