In his 6th Symphony, Gustav Mahler came face-to-face with mortality. Throughout this monumental work, the human spirit defies the unstoppable hand of destiny. Passionate melodies confront sinister marches and macabre dances.
No wonder he dubbed it his “Tragic” Symphony.
A new vision demands new sounds
To depict his transcendent visions, Mahler draws on an immense orchestra filled with unusual instruments— bells sounding from offstage, alpine cowbells… and the famous Hammer of Fate— a unique instrument created by the composer to depict the thunderous knocks portending the inevitable victory of the force which rules us all.
The evening also includes Don Juan— Richard Strauss’ swashbuckling tour de force starring the most legendary libertine of all time— and the world premiere of a new work by Joseph Bohigian.
An evening filled with spectacularly romantic music at the world's finest concert hall. If you attend only one free concert in Los Angeles this summer, make it this one.
