About the performance

An inspiring evening awaits when Italian conductor Andrea Molino guides the MSO through a program of Mahler, Messiaen and Richard Strauss.

Continuing its exploration of Mahler, the MSO is joined by celebrated American baritone Thomas Hampson performing the composer’s beautiful songs of a love-lorn wanderer.

Messiaen’s sublime Le Tombeau resplendissant evokes the glory of stained glass windows, and Strauss’ Tod und Verklärung takes us through death to final transfiguration.

“Thomas Hampson is at home in the music of Gustav Mahler . . . You would think, as he knows and understands these melodies with tragic overtones, common and amusing, that the singer worked with Mahler himself . . .” La Croix
