Concert: Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Fri. November 2, 2018, 08:00 PM - UGA Performing Arts Center -- Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall
When Gustav Mahler died, only his widow knew of the enigmatic Tenth Symphony. He left his final opus only partially orchestrated, but its tragic melodies, its shape, and substance were all on paper waiting to be snatched from the grave. This season Athens audiences can hear Mahler’s magnificent swan song masterfully realized by the British musician, scholar, and broadcaster Deryck Cooke. ASO Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles directs the powerful program.
