Event Description:
Experience the MahlerFest Orchestra, led by Robert Olson, in the lushly beautiful and lyrical Fourth Symphony of Gustav Mahler, composed during Mahler's "Wunderhorn" years, when his muse was the corpus of enchanting German folk poems, Des Knaben Wunderhorn ("Youth's Magic Horn"). This symphony closes with a setting of "The Heaveny Life" which describes, from a child's naive point of view, the wonders of heaven (some not as "heavenly" as you might think!) The featured soprano in this work will be Jennifer Bird-Arvidsson.

The concert will close with maestro Olson leading the MahlerFest Orchestra with the extraordinary mezzo-soprano Julie Simson in a performance of the Abschied ("Farewell") movement from Das Lied von der Erde. This ethereally beautiful song is perhaps Mahler's most intimate music--it is like a small symphony for a chamber orchestra, with solos for every instrument. And With this performance, Julie Simson will be saying her farewell to Boulder, for her career is taking her to another state, alas. Not to be missed!
