Ensemble: NEC Philharmonia
Conductor: Hugh Wolff
In 2011, Mahler's "First," "Third," "Fourth," "Fifth", and "Tenth Symphonies" were among the works performed whole or in part by NEC's orchestras, during the "Mahler Unleashed" festival that marked the centennial of the composer's death.
Now conductor Hugh Wolff returns to Mahler with this performance of the "Ninth Symphony" by the NEC Philharmonia. Wolff has selected Mahler's final completed work to close out his season as NEC's Calderwood Director of Orchestras. A profound contemplation of the splendors of life composed just a year before his death, the "Ninth" found Mahler at the peak of his artistry and embracing existence with all his heart.
Your next chance to hear Wolff conduct NEC orchestras in Jordan Hall will be fall 2015.
NEC's Calderwood Director of Orchestras, Hugh Wolff, and his conducting students Nathan Aspinall and David Yi provide a rare opportunity to hear two Mahler symphonies on consecutive nights.
