Greetings from Austria: Mahler’s 5th Symphony
Hilbert Circle Theatre
Korngold’s Violin Concerto, dedicated to the wife of his childhood mentor, Gustav Mahler, is awash in Hollywood memories, having been used in a variety of film scores over the years, and American violinist Stefan Jackiw plays with a skill that combines musical poetry and sensitivity. Listeners are sure to leave humming familiar tunes. Austrian conductor David Danzmayr takes us on the journey of Mahler’s portrayal of love to his wife, Alma, through the Adagietto movement in the robust Fifth Symphony.
