Great Organ: Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 5 transcribed for organ

TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 2018
7:30 PM – 9 PM, GREAT CHOIR

Artist in Residence David Briggs performs his celebrated 1998 transcription of Gustav Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. Mahler stated that “a symphony must be like the whole world—it must contain everything.” Embodying every emotional nuance, from the intense pathos of the funeral march through to the incomparable euphoria of the finale, Mahler’s 5th includes the Adagietto, perhaps his most famous and beloved orchestral movement.
