The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music's (CCM) Philharmonia and Concert Orchestras proudly present Gustav Mahler's Third and Fourth Symphonies, along with other selections from the composer's oeuvre, during a unique double-bill performance on Saturday, March 2, 2013.
This unique undertaking begins with a 4 p.m. performance by CCM's Concert Orchestra, featuring selections from Mahler's Des knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth's Magic Horn), followed by his Symphony No. 4 in G Major. At 8 p.m. that evening, the CCM Philharmonia will then present Mahler's Symphony No. 3 in D Minor, his longest piece and the longest symphony in the standard repertoire.
Due to its length and the significant forces it requires, Mahler's Symphony No. 3 is performed in concert far less frequently than his other symphonies, making this double-bill an especially rare feat. CCM Director of Orchestral Studies Mark Gibson conducts both symphonies.
The entire marathon will be recorded for future broadcast as part of an exciting new collaboration between CCM and CET, Cincinnati Public Television. Learn more about this collaboration by visiting www.uc.edu/news/NR.aspx?id=16908.
Tickets to each Philharmonia and Concert Orchestra "Mahler Marathon" concert are $12 for general admission, $6 for non-UC students and free for UC students with valid ID. These two concerts require separate admission. See the individual concert listings below for additional information.
Tickets can be purchased in person at the CCM Box Office, over the telephone at 513-556-4183 or online at ccm.uc.edu/boxoffice.
