NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
A captivating end to a season of wonders. Fittingly, Mahler’s monumental First Symphony marks Xian Zhang’s first NJSO performance of his music. Gil Shaham, one of today’s greatest and most admired violinists, scales the heights of Brahms’ Violin Concerto with dazzling virtuosity.
- BERNSTEIN Overture to Candide
A glittering display of orchestral brilliance and an effervescent tip of the hat to Bernstein’s 100th birthday.
- BRAHMS Violin Concerto
Glowing and warm; initially considered unplayable, it has become a cornerstone of the repertoire.
- MAHLER Symphony No. 1
Mahler’s magnificent First Symphony seeks life’s meaning in the cycles of nature and the mysteries of love.
