Mahler Symphony No.5
Marin Alsop, conductor Kevin Puts: The City (BSO Co-Commission, World Premiere) Mahler: Symphony No. 5
Returning to the work that launched her BSO tenure, Marin Alsop likens Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 to climbing Mount Everest for conductors. Mahler’s most popular symphony is paired with the world premiere of a newly-commissioned work by Pulitzer Prize winner Kevin Puts, celebrating the vitality of the American city in music with unique images created by videographer James Bartolomeo.
